The situation along Padua and Protappur borders in the district became tense yesterday when Indian Border Security Force (BSF) entered Bangladesh territory.
Sources said around 70 to 80 BSF troops intruded into Bangladesh land on Padua border in Jaintapur upazila at around 2:00pm. They tried to take hold of over 90 acres farmland, 150 yards off the borderline.
Their bid, however, was thwarted by the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) men, and they had to leave the area after one and a half hours.
Meanwhile, a pre-scheduled battalion commander-level flag meeting between BDR and BSF may take place at Jakiganj upazila headquarters today.
