India handed over six of seven kidnapped Bangladeshis to Bangladesh on Tues day. India's Border Security Force has returned them to Bangladesh Border Guard at Tamabil border of Bangladesh. These people went 'missing' on Sunday from Sylhet's Sripur border in Jaintapur near the Indian border.
"The six Bangladeshis were sent back in line with an Indian court's ruling. The (Indian) court will decide the fate of the other detained Bangladeshi," BGB commander Shafiul Azam told journalists.
Referring to BSF sources, the BGB commander said that seven Bangladeshis went missing when they went to cut wood at the border region in Sripur on Sunday. Local Khasia people caught and handed them over to Dauki police station in India.
On Monday, BSF informed the BGB about the detained Bangladeshis.
All of them are from Asampara village of Jaintapur union in Sylhet: Shahed Ahmed (22), 'Samad' (20), Nur Islam (20), Abdul Karim (18), Morshed Alam (25), and Selim Ahmed (20).
The Indian court ordered the police to send back all of them, barring Selim Ahmed, who is reportedly in police custody.
