BSF jawan loses hand in Bangaldeshi smugglers bomb attack in West Bengal


A BSF jawan lost his hand and sustained grievous injuries after Bangladeshi cattle smugglers attacked him with bombs in the early hours of July 11 along the India-Bangladesh border in West Bengal, the force said.

Constable Anisur Rehman also suffered pellet injuries to his lungs, liver and stomach from the impact of at least two country-made bombs lobbed at him near the Angrail border post in the North 24 Parganas district at about 3:30 am.

In the wake of the incident, the Border Security Force (BSF) issued an alert along the India-Bangladesh border in the south Bengal area as it registered a “strong protest” with their counterparts, the Border Guards Bangaldesh (BGB) to rein in the criminals on their side.

The jawan on border duty was attacked by a group of about 25 Bangaldeshi smugglers who entered 200 metres into the Indian side in order to smuggle cattle into their country with the assistance of locals, the force said. Read  More
