The body of a Bangladeshi youth named Tushar Khan was recovered from the Indian border area of Rahimpur in Brahmanpara upazila of Comilla. He is the son of Muslim Khan of Raninagar village in Naogaon district. He died on a visit to his mother-in-law’s house at Brahmanpara Shasidal in Comilla.
Naib Subedar Abdul Khalek, BGB commander of Shasidal BOP of Brahmanpara, said that an Indian citizen on his way back home after offering Fajr prayers, saw an unidentified young man lying on the border and informed the imam of the mosque. Later the locals informed the matter to BGB. Members of Shasidal BOP of BGB went to the spot and found the young man lying on the Indian side. BSF also reached the spot after receiving the information. At that time, BGB-BSF held round-by-round discussions to confirm the nationality of the unidentified youth. Due to lack of agreement between BGB and BSF, it was not possible to bring the youth to Bangladesh on time.
Last Thursday afternoon, cousin Asma Begum saw the picture of the young man on Facebook and told BGB, after meeting with BSF, the body was brought to Bangladesh. Dr. Brahmanpara Upazila Health Complex medical officer. Kazi Tanveer Absal said that last Thursday at 4:15 pm, he came to the spot and did the preliminary examination and found the young man dead. There are injury marks on the body of the deceased.
The young man’s mother-in-law Asma Begum said that after hearing the news of her husband’s illness, her nephew Tushar Khan came to visit Comilla Sadar Hospital on Wednesday. Later, from the hospital, he went to his home in Shasidal, Brahmanpara. The in-laws searched in different places without finding any trace of Tushar since last Thursday morning.
