A Bangladeshi national was killed on Wednesday when BSF forces fired to foil a drugs smuggling attempt at the International Border in West Bengal. At roughly 1:40 a.m., an accident happened about 1.2 kilometres inside Indian territory near border post-Nawada in the Malda region of the state. "Miscreants (both Indian and Bangladeshi smugglers) encircled our jawans and assaulted them with dah (large knife), bamboo sticks, and stones," a Border Security Force (BSF) official stated.
"The jawans tried to disperse them with shock grenades," the officer stated, "but the miscreants proceeded with their violent gesture and act."Subsequently, he said, the troops fired two bullet rounds "in self-defence".
After being fired at, a Bangladeshi guy was taken to the hospital, where he was declared dead. Dhoolipara, around six kilometres from the International Border, is where the Bangladeshi national was slain. On the scene, a phone, two iron 'dahs,' and 197 bottles of Phensedyl cough syrup were seized.
