'15 wounded in firing on Indo-Bangla border'

By The Assam Tribune

DHAKA, March 15 (PTI) - Cross-border firing by frontier guards of Bangladesh and India injured at least 15 villagers amid rise in tension over mobilisation of forces at northeastern Sylhet border, BDR officials have claimed.

An official of the Bangladesh Rifles alleged that the BSF fired without any "provocation" despite communications between the sector commanders of both sides over phone earlier Sunday.

"Most of the injured were fishermen who were fishing as the clash erupted," a journalist who claimed to have witnessed the firing told PTI over phone.

India has often argued that those killed in BSF firings at the border were found to be "smugglers or terrorists" who tried to defy the curfew and move across the international border at night.

The latest incident comes three days after the chief of the two forces met in New Delhi to discuss such firings at the border and check cross-border crimes.
