A Bangladeshi national was shot to death by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) at the bordering area of Haluaghat in Mymensingh on Tuesday.

The deceased identified as Abdul Jalil, 26, son of Abdul Malek, of village Gobrakura under Haluaghat upazila, was mentally challenged and remained missing since Monday night, confirmed Haluaghat police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Ali Mahmud.

He said that locals spotted the dead body lying inside Indian territory on Tuesday morning. Later, the deceased’s brother Khalil Miya identified the body, reports a correspondent from Mymensingh.

“Border Guard Bangladesh have been contacted by BSF and a process is underway to bring the body back,” said Abdul Mazid, BGB company commander in Koroitoli.
