After hearing the commotion local residents gathered to thwart the 6 BSF intruders. Three BSF members Óed during the ensuing pursuit however the Bangladeshi villagers managed to catch the remaining three and gave them a good thrashing before releasing them.
Victim Azizul said villagers chased the BSF with indigenous weapons, which forced the panicked BSF team to ᴀ밄ee. Azizul was lucky to be rescued as over a thousand Bangladeshis were murdered by India’s notorious BSF border guards in the past decade along the Bangladesh India border.
