Misunderstanding led to BSF jawan's killing: B'desh HM
October 19, 2019 14:28 IST

Exuding confidence that the recent killing of a Border Security Force jawan by a Bangladeshi border guard won't have an impact on bilateral ties, the neighbouring country's home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said on Saturday he would talk to his Indian counterpart Amit Shah, if needed, to "defuse the situation".

Khan also stated that an Indian fisherman, who was arrested on Thursday for trespassing into Bangladesh waters, will be released, in accordance with the norms.

Noting that a "misunderstanding between the forces" led to the killing of BSF head constable Vijay Bhan Singh, Khan said, "Steps would be taken to ensure that such incidents don't recur. If needed, I will talk to Amit Shah to diffuse the situation."

A Bangladeshi border guard fired from his AK-47 rifle during a 'flag meeting' along the border in West Bengal, killing Bhan Singh and injuring another jawan, Rajvir Yadav.

A BSF statement said the incident took place in Murshidabad district around 9 am when a force party approached Border Guard Bangladesh troops, standing at a "char" or a riverine in the middle of the Padma river, to resolve an issue linked to Indian fishermen.

The BGB personnel had held three Indian fishermen who were allowed by the BSF to fish within the International Border, but let go of two later.

Shortly after, a BGB jawan identified as Sayed fired from behind, killing Bhan Singh.

There you go, just a misunderstanding, hope this satisfies his unit and family.

Not sure what kind of chanakyan statement you are making, bd awam is anti india and anti hindu. Just because present leader appears friendly to India doesn't mean we can turn blind eye to killing of our security forces.

we should not be fooled just because present leader appears friendly to India. This is plain taqiya and nothing else. The beedis have always hated India and that's perfectly OK because they are more of a nuisance than anything else but when they cross the Indian border, it becomes a huge national security issue as well as an economic problem for us.

what is not ok is sneaking into India, taking Indian jobs, sending Indian money back home by hawala channels and scrounging off the Indian taxpayer's money.

Sir. Agree. But once cannot choose neighbour's. Speaking from second hand reports the current government is doing a fabulous job. If you have contacts in BD you can check. It's not going to be a smooth ride but at least things are not at a dead end.

Why Orange Hair Is Everywhere In Bangladesh

"Putting henna on has become a fashion choice in recent years for elder men," confirms Didarul Dipu, head fashion journalist at Canvas magazine.

"The powder is easily found in neighbourhood stores and easy to put on," he adds.

But the quest for youth is not the only reason why more and more Dhaka barbers are adding beard and hair colouring to their services.

Top imams also increasingly use henna powder colour in what experts say is a move to prove their Muslim credentials as some religious texts say the prophet Mohammed dyed his hair.

In Bangladesh most of the population of 168 million is Muslim.

"I heard from clerics that the prophet Mohammed used henna on his beard. I am just following," says Dhaka resident Abu Taher.

According to Dhaka University sociology professor Monirul Islam Khan, the growing number of henna beards "is a sign of increasing Muslim fervour in Bangladeshi society."

But, he adds, even those who are not strict followers do it.

He explains: "They want to look younger. Even the women are getting fond of it as it makes their hair glitter."

Former Bangladeshi military captain, convicted for killing Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, arrested.

A former Bangladeshi military captain, who was convicted for killing the country’s founder Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, was arrested by the police in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal confirmed ex-captain Abdul Majed’s arrest and said he had been sent to court to “exhaust legal options”.Majed was one of the six absconding ex-Army officers who were handed down capital punishment after their trial in absentia.

Minister Kamal said previous reports indicated Majed was hiding in India(Congress eco-system) and he was arrested from Dhaka upon his return. The minister said Majed, a self-confessed killer, was not only involved in Bangabandhu’s killing on August 15, 1975, at his private Dhanmandi residence but was also involved in the subsequent murder of four national leaders in high-security Dhaka Central Jail on November 3 in 1975.

Majed’s predawn arrest was led by the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of the police in Mirpur based on a tip-off.“Majed was near a shrine in Mirpur when policemen arrested him,” an official said.

After the arrest, a magistrate court sent the sacked Army captain to jail. Majed appeared in Old Dhaka Court Complex wearing white pyjama and pants. He was handcuffed with a bulletproof police jacket and helmet. “Majed was brought to the court at around 12.15 pm. Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate A M Zulfikar Hayat passed his order at 12.55 pm asking the police to send him to jail,” a police officer said.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Hemayet Uddin said Majed told the court that he was hiding in India and returned home recently.(Doubtful anybody would willingly return to face certain death by hanging. This looks like BJP administration finding and handing over the fugitive to Bangladesh)

Majed was not allowed to give any statement as according to the law convicts do not have the right to do so at this stage of legal proceedings.Legal experts said a report on his arrest would now be sent to the Dhaka District Judge’s Court, which originally tried the killers of Bangabandhu.

“The stipulated time for appeal against death penalty expired long ago. Majed now can just seek Presidential mercy unless the Supreme Court decides to consider any plea on his part,” a Supreme Court lawyer said.

Twelve ex-military officers were sentenced to death for the August 15, 1975 killing of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman along with most of his family members and five of them were executed in 2010 while one died of natural causes.

The five were hanged at Dhaka Central Jail on January 28, 2010, after the protracted legal procedure. The trial process began in 1996 when an indemnity law was scrapped as it was protecting the assassins.

The hanged lieutenant colonels were Syed Farooq Rahman, Sultan Shahriar Rashid Khan, AKM Mohiuddin Ahmed and Mohiuddin Ahmed and sacked Major Bazlul Huda, while sacked Colonel Rashed Pasha died of natural causes in Zimbabwe while on the run.

Farooq Rahman, Shahriar Rashid Khan, Mohiuddin Ahmed of the Artillery faced trial in the judge’s court in person.Huda was extradited from Thailand and Lancer Mohiuddin was sent back from the United States after the then district judge Golam Rasul delivered the judgment.

Majed was one of the remaining fugitives believed to be hiding abroad with no confirmed whereabouts.

The fugitives include key mastermind of the August 15, 1975 coup ex-lieutenant Colonel Abdur Rashid.

After the August 15, 1975 carnage, Majed was rehabilitated in civil service during the subsequent regime of former military dictator-turned politician Ziaur Rahman as an ex-cadre official and posted as the director of National Savings Department.

He fled the country while serving later in the finance ministry along with most of the other 1975 coup plotters as the 1996 general elections brought Awami League back to power which vowed bring justice to the killers of Bangabandhu.
