A Bangladeshi national was beaten to death allegedly by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Nitpur border in Porsha upazila of Naogaon early today.

The deceased was identified as Jaria Murmu, 40, a resident of Nitpur village of the upazila.

Lt Col Rafiqul Hasan, commanding officer of Border Guard Bangladesh battalion-14, said that BSF troops of Jagjitpur camp attacked a group of Bangladeshi men, including Jaria, while they were returning from India with cattle around 5:00am.

At one stage, BSF members beat Jaria mercilessly, leaving him dead on the spot.

Protesting the incident, BGB officials sent a letter to BSF for holding a flag meeting in this connection, CO Rafiqul said.
