'BSF' tortures Bangladeshi to death in Satkhira

India’s border guard, Border Security Force (BSF) has tortured a Bangladeshi citizen to death along the border in Satkhira Sadar upazila, his family members claimed.

The victim has been identified as Kabirul Hosen Molla, 32, son of Abdul Aziz Molla of Kalani Chhoy Ghoriya village of the upazila.

The victim’s brother Rabiul Islam Molla said the incident occurred on Saturday morning when he went to the border area along with a few others last evening in order to bring Indian tea leaves.

Members of BSF chased the group and caught Kabirul. However, the other group members managed to flee the scene.

Confirming the death, Lt Col Golam Mohiuddin Khandakar, commanding officer of BGB-33 Battalion, said we are trying to find out whether BSF is responsible for the incident.
