Another killing festival by BSF (India’s Border Security Force) done yesterday. This time it is in Moyanaguri village of the Majhipara border area in Tentulia, Panchagarh.

An infant, the mother and another Bangladeshi were killed late Sunday night by India’s Border Security Force on the country’s northernmost border. At least one other person, Majeda’s husband Shahidul, 30, was critically wounded and taken to Rangpur Medical College Hospital.

BSF personnel entered Moyanaguri village of the Majhipara border area in Tentulia, crossing the border through the Pillar-435 area at around 10.15pm.

They started opening fire after villagers had intercepted them.  Shahidul, Majeda and Mamun were shot as they lay asleep in their home.

Shahidul’s neighbour, Alamgir Hossain said: “I was woken by the sound of gunfire and realised it was BSF. I cycled to Matirpara BDR camp for help.”

Two sides traded fire after BDR members reached the spot.

The Indian border guards eventually withdrew. “BDR members with villagers later captured one BSF man,” the major said.

Now my questions is- Why BSF cross border? Because it is not first time. They entered Bangladeshi land before and killed many civilians before. I have few previous posts, which links are given bellow.
