Indian farmers wounded by Bangladeshis at IB
Kamalpur: Two Indian farmers were seriously injured when a group of Bangladeshis illegally trespassed into the Indian territory and attacked them in Dhalai district along the India-Bangladesh border.
Police said the trouble started at about 11 am when few Indian farmers caught hold of a cow, belonging to a Bangladeshi owner, which was feeding on an Indian farmer`s crops.
Outraged, the Bangladeshis attacked the Indian farmers with machetes and batons. Two injured farmers were admitted to Kamalpur sub-divisional hospital in critical condition, police said.
The barbed wire fencing was made 100 yards inside of the IB to adhere to Indo-Bangla border guidelines. As a result of this, a vast tract of homestead land and crop fields lie across the other side of the fence.
An Indian villager, Gulshan Bibi said, "We remain unguarded because BSF do not come beyond fencing. Bangladeshis often come to our crop fields and tend cows. They attacked us many times earlier also when we opposed tending of cows in our crop fields."
