The farmer was identified as Baset Ali, 36, son of Nayon Uddin of Amjol village in of Hatibandha upazila.
Baset was planting boro seedlings in the field, 50 yards inside the Bangladesh territory, when a patrol team of BSF intruded and picked him up forcibly, said Doikhowa BGB camp Commander Subedar Ruhul Amin quoting locals.
Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) sent a protest letter to 21 BSF battalion at Morichabari camp in West Bengal and asked them to hand over Baset, he added.

BSF has not yet returned the Bangladeshi farmer, said Lt Col Mehedi Hasan, commanding officer of 31 BGB battalion in Lalmonirhat.
