BSF shoots teen in Kurigram

Indian Border Security Force shot and injured a citizen of the country when he was entering Bangladesh through Kurigram's Fulbari border on Saturday night.

Nageshwari police rescued and admitted the youth to Kurigram General Hospital with bullet wounds, said Lt Col Touhidul Alam, commanding officer of BGB-15 Battalion in Lalmonirhat.

The victim, Milon Miah, 18, of Shahidaler Kuthi village in India's Cooch Behar, was illegally crossing the border to visit his maternal grandfather's house in Nageshwari upazila, police said.

Talking to reporters at the hospital, Milon said after being shot, he took treatment at Nageshwari Upazila Health Complex and went to his grandfather's house.

When police came to know that, he was rushed to Kurigram General Hospital around 3:30am.

His condition is now stable, said Pulol Kumar Sarkar, resident medical officer of the hospital.

Bangladesh Border Guard will take further decision on whether any legal action will be taken against the youth.

"We are looking into it. We will convey our decision through a press release later," said Lt Col Touhidul Alam.
