DG BSF reviews situation along Indo-Bangla border in Tripura
Agartala: Director General of BSF DK Pathak on Sunday reviewed the situation along the border in Tripura two days after a BSF jawan was lynched and another person killed in a clash between villagers and the border guards at South Ramnagar here, BSF sources said.
Pathak reviewed the security situation at the BSF headquarters at Salbagan near here with senior BSF officers including Inspector General (IG) BN Sharma, DIG BS Rawat.
Sources said the DG asked the local BSF authority to expedite erection of barbed wire fencing where work was incomplete along the Indo-Bangla border.
A BSF jawan was lynched after a man was killed when the border guards opened fire after they were attacked by villagers while chasing smugglers close to the Indo-Bangladesh border in Tripura on Friday last.
When the BSF personnel were chasing smugglers, villagers of South Ramnagar attacked them with sticks and choppers, DIG BSF BS Rawat said.
The BSF personnel initially fired in the air to disperse the irate mob, but later on opened fire in self defence in which a villager, Ismail Mia, was killed and ten persons were injured, the DIG said.
The Tripura government has already announced a magisterial inquiry into the incident.
