A Bangladeshi cattle trafficker was shot dead by BSF, as per Bangladeshi news reports.
The bullet-hit body of Md Mithun Ali (25), son of Manjur Hossain, was found along the border, in Paba upazila of Rajshahi district of Bangladesh on October 27.
Informed by locals, BGB men rushed to the spot and found the body in Char Majhardiar area – 200-400 metre from the border — around 6am, Lt Col Sabbir Ahmed, director of Rajshahi battalion of Border Guard Bangladesh said.
Seeking anonymity, some police and BGB officials in Rajshahi said that their primary findings showed Mithun’s death was due to gunshots from Indian Border Security Force. They said law enforcers have gathered evidence that Mithun tried to cross the border illegally when he was shot.
Local government leaders and villagers also echoed the law enforcers. Bazle Rizvi Hasan Munjil, chairman of Haripur union parishad, said, “All villagers gathered there (spot) and told me that the man was killed by BSF.”
The chairman said Mithun used to traffic cattle across the border.
