Thakurgaon, Sep 1 (bdnews24.com) – The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) shot dead a 30-year-old man at Nagorvita border adjoining Baliadangi upazila in the early hours of Saturday.
Mohammad Ajirul, son of Potla Mohammad of Dakkhin Doari village in the upazila, was killed around 3:30am near pillar 376/4 of the border.
"A patrol of BSF's 14th battalion opened fire when Ajirul tried to make his way across the border near the pillar. He was hit in the head and died on the spot," Commander of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) 30th Battalion Lt Col Touhidul Islam told bdnews24.com.
He added that the BGB immediately protested the killing and that a half-an-hour company commander-level flag meeting was held between BSF's Tingaon camp and Nagorvita Camp from 9am.
"We are trying to get back the body by evening," Islam added.
