A Bangladeshi cattle trader was beaten to death by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Putkhali border in Sharsha upazila of Jessore early today.

Identity of the deceased could not be known immediately, reports our Benapole correspondent.

Subedar Alauddin, in-charge of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) battalion-23 of Putkhali camp, said BSF troops of Angrail camp caught the cattle trader when he was returning to Bangladesh territory from India through Chorermath border in Putkhali around 5:00am.

They beat and tortured him to death and left the body on the frontier, the BGB official said.

The body bore several injury marks, he said.

BGB personnel have already sent a letter to the BSF protesting the killing.
