Two Bangladeshi farmers were shot by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along the border in Kasba upazila of Brahmanbaria on Tuesday.

The injured were Azam Ali Bhuiyan, 55, son of late Nur Ali, and Iqbal Bhuiyan, 45, son of late Lokman Bhuiyan, of Dhajnagar village under the upazila.

Ashiq Hasan Ullah, commander of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB)-60 in Sultanpur, said the BSF troops opened fire on the farmers who were grazing cattle along the border in the morning, leaving them injured.

Local people rushed them to Kasba Upazila Health Complex and they are now out of danger.

The BGB commander said a flag meeting will be held between the BGB and the BSF in this regard in the afternoon.
