The border guards rescued them, while they were being trafficked to India

Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) on Friday rescued nine Bangladeshi nationals while being trafficked to India through the Sadipur border in Benapole.

The nine included five women and two children. They hail from different parts of the Faridpur, Narail and Bagerhat districts, reports UNB.

BGB 49 Commanding Officer Ariful Haque confirmed and said: “Acting on a tip-off, a team of BGB 49 conducted a drive in the area and rescued nine people in the morning.”

However, none of the traffickers were arrested as they managed to flee the scene, sensing the presence of the border guards, he added.

The victims were handed over to Benapole Port Police Station, where a case was filed in this connection, he also added.
