Lokman Hossain Dhaka Tribune

Four days have passed since villagers thrashed him on suspicion of being a cattle-lifter

India’s Border Security Force (BSF) has not yet handed over the body of a Bangladeshi man lynched in west Tripura four days ago.

The deceased was identified as Lokman Hossain, 32, of Madhabpur upazila in Habiganj.

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Battalion 55 Captain Lt Col Samiun Nabi Chowdhury confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Thursday.  

The incident took place at Gopal Nagar in west Tripura on Sunday. 

Local sources say when Lokman was heading to India’s Mohan in illegal trespass, villagers in Gopal Nagar spotted him and beat him up on suspicion that he was a cattle-lifter. 

A police team rescued him and admitted him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Following the incident, the BGB and BSF on Wednesday conducted a flag meeting with regard to the handover of the body of the dead Bangladeshi national. 

However, when the BSF suggested the handover of the body without the autopsy report, the meeting came to an abrupt end without a resolution of the issue.  

“The reason behind Lokman’s death is still unclear. So, we were reluctant to receive his body without the autopsy report, which caused a delay in the handover of his body. However, we assure you that we will soon bring his body home.”
