BSF detains five Bangladeshis in Rajshahi border

BGB requests flag meeting

The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) detained five Bangladeshis along Khorchaka border in Godagari upazila of Rajshahi yesterday morning.

They are Rajon Hossain (25); Sohel (27); Kabil, (25); Shahin (35); and Shafiqul (30).

Paba’s Haripur Union Parishad Chairman Rejab Al Hasan Monjil said the detainees went to graze their cows in the border area, when BSF took them away. All of them are residents of Gamabona village in Paba upazila.

One of them was tortured by the BSF members, he said quoting locals.

Rajshahi BGB-1 Commander Lt Col Ferdous Ziauddin Mahmud said they are aware of the development.

“We’ve written to BSF for a flag meeting, which might take place on Saturday [today],” he said.
