Sunamganj BGB 26 Captain Lt Colonel Mohammad Maksudul Alam said a special patrol team tried to stop the smuggling of 25-30 cows from India, when a group of 30-35 smugglers attacked the team’s Lance Naik Thui Hala Mong Marma.

Md Kamal Hossain was shot after Lance Naik Thui Hala Mong Marma fired in self-defence, he added.

Kamal was taken to Sunamganj 250-bed Sadar Hospital. As his condition deteriorated, he was later shifted to Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital where he died in the afternoon, said the BGB official.
