BSF Soldier Killing: How Radicalisation Of Bangladesh’s Border Guard Jawans Is Becoming A Security Threat For India


All is not quite cordial on India’s eastern front with Bangladesh. Jawans of the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) have, of late, started displaying increasing hostility and belligerence towards their counterparts in the Border Security Force (BSF).

The killing of a BSF head constable by BGB jawans at the international border in Bengal’s Murshidabad district on Thursday (17 October) is just an indication of this belligerence and animosity, say BSF officers posted along the border.

At the senior levels, the relationship between the border forces of the two countries is “very cordial”. “But at the ground level, at the level of the BGB jawans, lance naiks, naiks and havildars, we sense a growing hostility towards our jawans and ranks,” said a BSF deputy commandant posted at the South Bengal Frontier.
