Deaths along border matter of grave concern: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said the 'incidents of death' of innocent Bangladeshis along the border are a matter of grave concern.

"The death incidents of innocent Bangladeshis along the border areas are the matter of grave concern to us," she said.

The Prime Minister made the remark while addressing a parade marking the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Day 2016 at its headquarters at Peelkhana in the city.

She also appreciated the role of BGB personnel in recent years to reduce the number of death incidents through strengthening friendly relations with Indian BSF.

"The death incidents in border areas have come down to a great extent in recent years due to your efforts for strengthening friendly relations with the BSF," she said.
