A Bangladeshi young man was gunned down by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along Patgram border in Patgram upazila of Lalmonirhat on Tuesday morning.

The shooting  occurred near No 862 main pillar of Shamsernagar Kanirbari under No 3 ward of Jagatber union of the upazila.

The deceased was identified as Rifat Hossain, 30, son of Islam Hossain of Munshirhat Najirgomani area in the upazila.

Belal Hossain, company commander of BGB-61 battalion, said a patrol team of the BSF opened fire on a group of cattle traders when they went to the border to bring cattle around 10:30am.

Later, members of the Indian police and the BSF took away the body.

A letter was sent to the BSF seeking return of the body after holding a flag meeting, said Belal.

In September, the BSF reiterated its policy of using non-lethal weapons on the Bangladesh-India border in response to the concerns expressed by the BGB on border deaths.

The BSF assured that all unarmed and innocent trespassers, and the victims of human trafficking will be handed over to BGB personnel.
