BSF member held inside Bangladesh

A team of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) yesterday held a man of Indian Border Security Force from Modhutila Eco Park in Nalitabari frontier of Sherpur district.

BGB members also recovered a 9mm pistol, 10 bullets, a cartridge, some Indian and Bangladeshi currencies from the possession of Dilip Kedar, 38, a havildar of 35 Battalion of BSF.

During preliminary interrogation, Dilip said that he is a member BSF intelligence wing, and visited Bangladesh on different occasions, said sources at Sixth BGB Battalion.

Acting on a tip-off, a BGB patrol team, led-by Maj Nahiduzzaman, held Dilip, dressed in plainclothes, following his suspicious movement in the park at about 11:00am.

Contacted, Lt Col Abdul Khabir, commander of Sixth BGB Battalion, confirmed the incident saying that they were interrogating the BSF jawan to find out the motive of his visit in Bangladesh.

Punish him according to existing laws. But don't indulge in brutalities as the Indians do.

If BGB followed the BSF example and killed him, the Indian government and the international world would start a media war against Bangladesh. What a vicious double standard! When will Sheikh Hasina gain the courage to protest Indian hostility to us?

    The BGB now should ask the BSF chief what does he think if Bangladesh had observed 'shoot to kill policy', what he had been propagating for last few years. The BSF jawans's suspicious movement inside the Bangladesh territory in civil dress indicates his likely involvement in smuggling. No wonder international media calls them the Border Smuggling Force.

    Its really shocking, what do they want from us? Thanks to our gallant and vigilant BGB. I hope, the govt must take the matter seriously into consideration. One is caught but, since they are in their good book, many of those might have been wandering about the vulnerable points of our country. So our national security agencies must remain alert against any subversion by the intruders.

    A BSF man came within Bangladesh territory because as he says, he came several time before for intelligence purpose. Secondly, BSF may think that Bangladesh is a part of India, so he can move freely in Bangladesh.

    I think AL government should apologies to Indian Government for the arrest of BSF men in Bangladeshi territories. I urge that it should be done as quickly as possible before Indian government get upset with AL government's lack of cooperation.

    If this man is not kept under trial or tit for tat practices will ultimately prove our weakness to our neighbor. When our common people are tortured by BSF, but a BSF man being accessed to our land can't be freed unconditionally. He must hand over to Law enforcers.
