Belal Hossain, company commander of BGB-61 battalion, said a patrol team of BSF opened fire on a group of cattle traders when they went to the border to bring cattle around 10:30am.

Later, Indian police and BSF took away the body.

A letter was sent to BSF seeking return of the body after holding a flag meeting, said Belal.
