A Bangladeshi youth has died at Patgram Upazila Health Complex in Lalmonirhat, allegedly after members of the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) left him injured in the Srirampur border area of the district on Saturday.
The deceased was identified as Sohel Miah, 22, a resident of Burimari upazila.
According to locals and BGB sources, members of Kochbihar-61 BSF detained Sohel when he was coming back to Bangladesh with cattle at around 4am.
Patgram Upazila Health Complex Medical Officer Dr Rafiqul Islam said: “Sohel was critically injured when he was brought to the hospital around 6am. He died soon after we started treatment.”
Lalmonirhat-15 BGB Battalion Commander Lt Col Golam Morshed said the authorities concerned are in the process of scrutinising if Sohel was killed after torture by the BSF.
