Dhaka, Dec 6: An allegation has been made against the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) for entering the Bangladesh border at Lalmonirhat and beating up a woman. The incident took place in the pocket border area of Singimari Union of Hatibandha Upazila on Tuesday at 2 pm.

After investigation, it is known that a woman named Zohra Begum (45) was drying clothes in the Bukhand of Bangladesh near sub-pillar number 8 of main pillar number 893 of Singimari border. At that time, a member of Phulbari BSF camp in Shitalkuchi area of Cooch Behar region of India entered the interior of Bangladesh and beat up Johra. When the people on the border rushed to the woman's screams and protested, the other BSF personnel fired blank rubber bullets and went to their places. There is a lot of tension on the border.

In this regard, Samchul Alam, a member of Singimari Union Parishad, told Jago News that BSF sometimes enters the Bangladesh border. Today, he entered again, beat up a woman and fired blank rubber bullets. Nasir Hossain, in-charge of Doani Teesta-2 Singimari BGB camp, told Jago News that the matter is international. Not all border people are good. Journalists have exaggerated the matter. We reached the spot after receiving the information and calmed down the situation. A flag meeting between BGB-BSF is scheduled to take place on Wednesday in this regard.
