West Bengal: BSF jawan goes missing



Malda (WB): A BSF jawan went missing on the Indo-Bangla border at Kaliachak in Malda district on Sunday, police sources said.

Jawan S Venkatesh, deployed at the border outpost, did not report for duty today triggering apprehensions that he had been abducted by cattle smugglers, they said.

The BSF authorities then intimated local police about it.

The border guard authorities here have contacted their counterparts in Bangladesh for tracing him.

The jawans are in constant conflict with cattle smugglers along the stretch especially before Eid festival every year.
