Later, members of the Indian police and the BSF took away the body.

A letter was sent to the BSF seeking return of the body after holding a flag meeting, said Belal.

In September, the BSF reiterated its policy of using non-lethal weapons on the Bangladesh-India border in response to the concerns expressed by the BGB on border deaths.

The BSF assured that all unarmed and innocent trespassers, and the victims of human trafficking will be handed over to BGB personnel.
