Indian fisherman lands in Rajshahi jail

An Indian fisherman who entered Bangladesh illegally in Charghat upazila here on Thursday was sent to jail on Friday as two cases were filed against him for trespassing and catching hilsa.

 The fisherman was identified as Pranab Mondol, a citizen of Sahebnagar Chhirachar in Jalangi area of Murshidabad district of India.
 
Samit Kumar Kundu, officer-in-charge of Charghat Police Station, said Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Charghat Border Outpost (BOP) Habildar Humayun Kabir filed two cases against Pranab for entering Bangladesh territory and catching hilsa illegally.
 
BGB handed over Pranab to Charghat Police Station on Thursday night and was sent to the court around 11am on Friday from where he was taken to Rajshahi Central Jail.
 
On Thursday, BGB said its members were forced to fire back in self-defence after being attacked by Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along the Rajshahi border that led to the death of a BSF man.
 
In a press release, the BGB said the BSF members intruded into Bangladesh territory and tried to snatch an Indian fisherman detained while illegally fishing in the Padma River.
 
“BSF members first opened fire while fleeing from Bangladesh territory towards India in the morning,” the release said.
 
The incident took place 650 yards inside Bangladesh territory in Shahariaghat Balughat of the river under Charghat upazila in Rajshahi, said the BGB press release.
