A 20-year-old Bangladeshi youth was gunned down allegedly by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) in bordering Patgram upazila of Lalmonirhat early Friday, according to the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB).

The deceased was identified as Abul Kalam Daku, son of Apir Uddin of Dangapara area under Sreerampur union of the upazila.

According to BGB and police, a group of people including the youth went to the Indian border to bring cattle around 11pm.

Sensing the presence of the suspected cattle smugglers, the BSF members fired, targeting them from the border, leaving Kalam critically injured, they said.

Later, his collaborators rushed him to Patgram Upazila Health Complex where physicians declared him dead.

Patgram police station’s Officer-in-Charge Abu Sayeed confirmed that matter saying that the body was sent to Lalmonirhat Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.
