The BSF guards have admitted their wrongdoing, says BGB
A Bangladeshi family suffered harassment at the hands of Indian border guards who entered their frontier home while chasing drug smugglers, border officials said on Friday.
The incident occurred on Thursday night at the Phulbari border of Uttar Kuthi Chandrakhana in Kurigram Sadar.
Local villager Rafiqul Islam said BSF members forced their entry into the house despite his protest that no smuggler was there. They misbehaved with him and his family members.
However, BSF members told the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) at a flag meeting on Friday that they entered Bangladesh by mistake while chasing smugglers in the dark of night.
Lalmonirhat 15 BGB Battalion Commander Lt Col SM Touhidul Alam PAC said that the situation was brought under control after the flag meeting.
The BSF guards have admitted their wrongdoing, he said.
