Indian farmer abducted by Bangladeshi nationals released

Tension erupted along the India-Bangladesh border in Tripura after Bangladeshi nationals kidnapped an Indian farmer in retaliation to the arrest of a Bangladeshi man by BSF troopers, police said on Thursday.

Agartala: An Indian villager, who was kidnapped from near the Indo-Bangla international border at Mohanpur in West Tripura district, has been released, a senior official said on Monday.

BSF detained a Bangladeshi national at Mohanpur yesterday for crossing over to Indian side without valid documents and handed him over to state police.

After a few hours some Indian villagers went to their field on the other side of the fencing for grazing cattle at a place about 25 km from here. A few Bangladeshis then kidnapped one of them, BSF DIG B S Rawat said.

The Indian villager was released last night after BSF took up the matter with BGB in a flag meeting, he added.

The Indian villager was identified as Rajpal Sharma.
