Bangladesh: Intrusion by Indian Border Security Force (BSF)

Onnesha reports that some members of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) sneaked into Bangladesh soil and started firing when they were intercepted by the villagers. Three Bangladeshi villagers including an infant and the mother were killed.


  • This is terrible! Is this kind of thing common in the region!?

  • Yes Daniel it’s really terrible.

    Indian Border Security Force (BSF) did this kind of acts previously too. It’s not new for Bangladesh. Bangladeshi Government protest it and complained at the highest label of Indian Government previously but nothing changed. Still it is happening. And the sufferers are poor civilians of Bangladesh who live in village near Bangladesh-India border.

  • This is almost unbelievable! But we know that people can be real — REAL IMPRESSIVELY — nasty sometimes. At least these absurd incidents are coming into the light now. I hope it makes any difference.

    Sad things are happening in the region. When will all this violence stop?
