Two BSF men caught for entering Bangladesh

Bangladeshi people on Challishpara frontier at Daulatpur upazila here caught two Indian Border Security Force (BSF) men when they illegally entered Bangladesh territory and fired on them yesterday.
Sources said one of the BSF members was bullet-hit. BDR, however, did not disclose names of the BSF forces.
According to BDR 35-Rifle Battalion, two BSF men from colony camp at Jalangi Thana in Murshidabad district of West Bengal illegally entered the Bangladesh territory through the border point near the pillar No 3s-2 at around 11:30pm.
Bangladeshi people working inside the territory got panicked and started to run away.
Sources said the BSF men opened fire on the innocent Bangladeshi people. At one stage, one BSF man got bullet injury with his own firearms and fell down on the spot, while another stopped the firing.
The local people then caught both the BSF men and informed local Chilmari BDR outpost of the matter.
The BDR team from the outpost rushed to the spot and arrested them. No causalities of the local people were reported so far.
After a letter sending by BSF Murshidabad District Commander Atul Agnuhothra, BDR agreed to sit with them at a flag meeting yesterday.
When contacted, Commanding Officer (CO) of 35-Rifle Battalion of BDR Lt Col Sayeed told this correspondent over cellphone that they are yet to reach any decision.
