BSF hands over 2 BGB men

Star Online Report

The Indian border troops handed over two members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) this afternoon a day after picking them up from Alatuli frontier in Chapainawabganj.

Border Security Force (BSF) members handed over Ali Newaz and Azad in a flag meeting in the border area around 2:30pm, reports our Rajshahi correspondent.

The BGB men, whose full identity was not available immediately, went to Bokchand area of Alatuli union in Chapainawabganj Sadar upazila around 9:30pm for their duty and did not return, said an official of BGB.

Later, the BGB officials learnt that the BSF men from Sandua camp in Lalgola of Murshidabad picked up the duo as they by mistake intruded into Indian territory.

Before receiving the duo, the BGB officials sent a letter to their Indian counterpart seeking explanation on the issue, the official added.

When contacted, Lt Col Mohammad Nazim Khan, director of 37 BGB Battalion, termed the incident a misunderstanding.

BSF members did not arrest Newaz and Azad rather ensured their safety, said Khan, also commanding officer of the BGB camp.
