In a grave provocation, troopers of the Border Guard Bangladesh fired upon a patrolling party of the BSF on the Indo-Bangladesh border in WB's Murshidabad district. Two BSF men were injured out of which one succumbed to his injuries. Officials said a 'flag meeting' of ground commanders has been sought by the BSF along the border and it is currently underway. Reports say the firing occurred when BSF jawans approached their Bangladesh counterparts after the latter had illegally detained an Indian fisherman.
