Such incident prompts people to raise questions about the bilateral relationship, he says

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has termed the Indian Border Security Force’s (BSF) attempt to push a mentally challenged person in to Bangladesh through bordering Feni River undesirable as well as unwarranted.

"Yes, we discussed the issue when the Indian high Commissioner [Riva Ganguly Das] came to my office to hand over coronavirus medical supplies on behalf of her government," he told Dhaka Tribune on Wednesday night.

"I told her that such incident prompts people to raise questions about the relationship between the two countries. This may also impact the relationship adversely," said the foreign minister.

"I conveyed to her that this is undesirable as well as unwarranted," he said.

When asked about the Indian envoy's response, Dr Momen said: "She stated that the person in question is a Bangladeshi. I said even if the person is a Bangladeshi, this is not the way. There is a standard procedure in place.

"Then the high commissioner said that it is the job of some overzealous persons. The Indian government does not approve of such practice," he said.

The foreign minister said that he asked Ganguly to stay in touch with the BSF to avoid any repeat of such incident.
