Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has handed over the Indian teenager who crossed into Bangladesh through Kurigram's Fulbari border after being shot by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) on Saturday.

The BGB invited the BSF to a flag meeting at Fulbari's Anantapur border on Sunday. During the meeting, the BGB handed over Milon Miah, 18, to members of the BSF 192 Battalion Jhikri camp of Cooch Behar.

Lieutenant Colonel SM Touhidul Alam, commanding officer of Lalmonirhat 15 BGB Battalion, confirmed this to UNB.

Milon was handed over to BSF after he was provided treatment at Kurigram General Hospital and his condition became stable.

On Saturday, he entered Bangladesh after sustaining a bullet wound during the election violence in the Cooch Bihar of India. The teenager is from Sahebganj of the district.

As the wounded Milon went to his maternal grandfather's house in Kurigram's Nageshwari upazila, police detained him from there and took him to the hospital. He was later handed over to the BGB as his condition became stable.

Towhidul Alam said Milon was shot as he went out during a curfew enforced by the Indian government.
