    Bangladeshi intruder killed in BSF firing

    Agartala (PTI): A Bangladeshi intruder was shot dead by BSF at the border village of Murticherra in North Tripura district while three Bangladeshis were arrested from Belonia in South Tripura district, police said on Wednesday.

    BSF personnel last night spotted a group of Bangladeshi intruders cutting barbed wire fencing to sneak into the Indian territory. When challenged by border guards, they attacked the BSF men with sharp weapons, forcing BSF to open fire.

    While one Bangladeshi, who had already entered into Indian side got killed, other members of the group managed to flee, police said.

    Police suspected that the deceased might be a prisoner as his left hand was tied with a chain and lock.

    In a separate incident, three Bangladeshis were arrested from a hotel in Belonia sub-divisional of South Tripura district yesterday, police said.

    The trio were lodged in a hotel with false identities and were not carrying any passport, police said.
