Indian BSF kills Bangladeshi National today

Indian Border Security Force (BSF) shot dead a Bangladeshi National at Masudpur frontier under Shibganj Upazila of Chapainawabganj District of the country on Friday, 10th December 2010, sources confirmed.

The deceased was identified as Kalu Mia, son of Abdur Razzak of Thuthapara-Sahapara village of the upazila. Local people said that Mr Kalu was a businessman.

Commanding Officer of 39 Rifles Battalion Abu Bakar Abu said the BSF troops from Shubhopur camp in West Bengal open fired on a group of Bangladeshi cattle traders while they were returning home at about 3:00am, killing Kalu Mia on the spot.

Local people however managed to took the body into Bangladesh territory defying BSF's menace.

Received on information, Shibganj police recovered the body in the morning and sent it to Adhunik Sadar Hospital in Chapainawabganj morgue for autopsy.

The BDR sent a protest letter to their counterpart protesting the killing. 

Killing of Bangladeshi nationals is rampant at the India-Bangladesh borders which is like routine work of Indian BSF. Human Rights Watch (HRW), an US based international human rights group revealed earlier in their report that BSF killed more than 900 Bangladesi at the India-Bangladesh border in the last decade.  There was not a single case where punishment was awarded to the responsible BSF members, the report observed.

The HRW report also criticized the Bangladesh government for its weakness to save the life of its nationals and urged the government to take immediate measure to save its national in the Indian border of the country.
