The Border Security Force (BSF) has issued a statement stating that the personnel of BSF have counterpoised the miscreant’s attack on Indo-Bangladesh Border.

The border guarding force informed that acting on specific information regarding the smuggling of a large quantity of sugar and onions, a special operation was launched by BSF troops on Friday night in the general area of 110 Bn’s border outpost.


“The BSF party observed miscreants carrying smuggling goods towards Bangladesh very close to the International Border. Simultaneously, a large number of Bangladeshi miscreants became active on the Bangladesh side to receive the smuggling consignment,” BSF said.


A press communiqué issued by the BSF said that they challenged the miscreants to stop but they adamantly refused to comply and kept on advancing.


“The situation was aggravated when more miscreants encircled the BSF personnel and pelted stones on them. Despite warnings and use of non-lethal weapons to disperse the mob, the miscreants persisted on their aggressive behavior and attacked BSF personnel with iron machetes (Dahs) and Sticks (Lathies) and pelted stones, resulting in injuries of three BSF personnel, of which one was injured severely on right  eye and had to shifted to Shillong.” the statement said.


“In spite of repeated warnings the miscreants did not deter and kept on approaching aggressively towards the BSF party with the intention to cause bodily injury to the BSF party and also tried to snatch their weapons. Sensing the dire circumstances and acute threat one shot was fired in air to disperse the miscreants but they did not get fazed by the fire. Thereafter sensing the aggressive demeanor, a second round was fired as a result of which miscreants of both sides dispersed. Later on, it was learnt that one Smuggler had died in the incident and another BD Smuggler had sustained injuries,” it added.
