Members of Indian Border Security Force yesterday detained and released three members of Rapid Action Battalion and two of their informers at Ashabari border in Cumilla’s Brahmanpara upazila.

The Rab members are Constable Regan Barua, Constable Abdul Matin and Sepoy Sainik Wahid and their informers are Moni Begum and Khuki Liza.

BSF picked up the five around 9:00am as they mistakenly crossed the border line. Later, they were handed over to BGB through a flag meeting around 5:30pm, said Shahjahan Ali, officer-in-charge of Brahmanpara Police Station.

The elite force members were in uniform when they were picked up, said Assistant Superintendent of Police Mohitul Islam, who is now in charge of CPC-2 of Rab-11.
