Chuadanga, Jan 7 (Just News): India’s Border Security Force (BSF) tortured a Bangladeshi cattle trader to death along Chuadanga border and picked up two other cattle traders from Naogaon border area early Saturday.

Killing of the Bangladeshi cattle trader coincided with the seventh anniversary of the killing of Bangladeshi girl Felani by BSF members which had sparked a huge outcry across the country.

Teenage girl Felani, who used to work as a domestic help in New Delhi, was shot to death by members of BSF while returning home crossing over the barbed-wire fence along with her father along Anantapur border point in Kurigram district on 7 January 2011.

Later, the BSF troopers hanged her body on the barbed-wire fencing at the border.

Her family is yet to get justice.

The deceased, Bakul Mandal, was the son of late Sadar Uddin Mandal of Phulbari village of Damurhuda upazila in the Chuadanga district.

Officials in the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and locals said BSF members chased a group of Bangladeshi cattle traders who entered India near border pillar number 88 around 5:00am and caught one of them while the others managed to flee.

Later, the BSF members beat him mercilessly and threw him into Bangladesh territory, said locals.

Bakul succumbed to his injuries when he was rushed to the nearby hospital.

BGB Battalion-6 deputy director Mohammad Amir Majid confirmed the news of the killing.   

Our Naogaon correspondent reported that the BSF also captured two Bangladeshi cow traders and handed over them to South Dinajpur Dalla police station in India.

The two traders were identified as Naimul Huq, 38, and Ziaur Rahman, 25.

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) sources said a group of 6 to 7 cow traders entered India to bring cows through Nitpur border on Friday night, and BSF caught Naimul and Ziaur while the group was returning using another border. Other members of the group, however, could flee.

The two traders were then handed over to South Dinajpur Dalla police.

BGB 14 Battalion captain Colonel Mohammad Ali Reza confirmed the matter and said BGB is trying to hold a flag meeting with BSF to bring the two men back, but BSF is yet to respond.
