After an attack, BSF raised the matter with Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) and called for a flag meeting.

Bangladeshi farmers enter Indian farmers' fields to graze their cattle and deliberately damage their crops. To ensure the safety of the Indian farmers, the BSF jawans had temporarily set up a post near the border.

Over hundred villagers and miscreants from Bangladesh entered the Indian side and attacked the jawans with sticks and sharp-edged weapons (Dahs).

As soon as the Indian troops received the information about the attack, more BSF jawans reached  the site of the incidents and the injured jawans were immediately evacuated to the nearest hospital for treatment.

Earlier also many incidents took place wherein Indian farmers crops were being destroyed by Bangladeshis forcibly grazing their cattle on Indian land..

Meanwhile, BSF has lodged an FIR against the unknown Bangladeshi attackers at Police Station Ranitala.

Indian BSF spokesperson issued a statement and stated that, “BSF jawans have been attacked several times in the past by miscreants and their accomplices in a planned manner, but still, the jawans do not let their plans succeed. The area of Nirmalchar is very difficult, and despite the lack of facilities, the BSF jawans are guarding the border day and night. Indian Farmers have been complaining about the theft and damage of their crop by BD villagers and this time BSF has set a forward post to protect them while working in their field."
