A Bangladeshi youth has been gunned-down by members of the Border Security Force (BSF) of India, near Thakurgaon border.

The incident occurred at Dongaon border in Haripur upazila early on Monday.

The deceased was identified as Md Sumon, 25, son of Shafirul Islam, a resident of Dangipara village.

The BSF members also picked up another youth Md Masud Rana, 28, son of Enadul.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Lt Col Samiun Nabi, commanding officer of BGB 50 Battalion, said: "The BSF members from Basatpur camp opened fire on a group of cattle traders when they went to border post no 357, leaving Sumon dead on the spot.

"BGB has strongly condemned the incident to BSF. We have called for a flag meeting with the BSF officials to bring back the detained Bangladeshi national and the body of the deceased. We will also discuss the reasons behind this incident. I am on my way to the meeting."
