The victims said that they were farming when a barrage of BSF came in a truck and started shooting at the Bangladeshis using shotguns

At least ten people were injured when Border Security Force (BSF) allegedly started firing at Bangladeshi people at Khanpur near the Rajshahi border around 11am. 

Talking to Dhaka Tribune, the victims said that they were farming when a barrage of BSF came in a truck and started shooting at the Bangladeshis using shotguns.

The farmers out of fear started to run randomly. The victims are Rumon (23), Shujon (23), Sohel (28), Dullal (35), Robiul (32), Rubel (25), Dullal (40), Jotu (40), Shuruj (19), and Sumon (30). 

When asked about the incident, RAB-1 Rajshahi Captain Lt. Col  Fedous Zia Uddin Mahmood said that BSF shot cautionary rubber bullets at the farmers as they had entered India while cutting grass. 

But after sometime, according to BSF, the Bangladeshis joined forces and started attacking the BSF. In self-defence the BSF shot rubber bullets again. BGF staged a protest against the whole incident.
