Bangladeshi cow smugglers tie explosives to cows neck, throw them in river to discourage the BSF from intercepting at West Bengal border

In total 365 cattle which were being smuggled were recovered by the BSF since Wednesday.

Bangladeshi cow smugglers on the India-Bangladesh border at West Bengal have come up with a cruel and dangerous modus operandi to smuggle the cattle. The BSF on Thursday recovered cows with IED (improvised explosive devices) tied around their necks. The IEDs were aimed at the BSF troops who would try to intercept the cow smuggling and catch the smugglers.

The BSF officials say this is the cruelest method of cow smuggling they have come across since this poses a threat to both, the cow as well as the BSF personnel. Some cows were recovered from the river near the Haradurga border post along with south Bengal frontier. These cattle had an IED placed inside an aluminium canister and tied around their necks. The cows were then tied with banana trunks and ropes and dropped in a river from Murshidabad, North 24 Parganas.

In total 365 cattle which were being smuggled were recovered by the BSF since Wednesday. The BSF is currently studying the IED tied to the cows to scare off the BSF troops.

Earlier this month, a BSF jawan had lost his hand after cattle smugglers from Bangladesh hurled bombs at him. Around 25 cattle smugglers had entered 200 mtrs into the Indian side of the border with the help of local villagers. BSF constable Anisur Rehman suffered pellet injuries to his lungs, liver and stomach from two country-made bombs thrown at him. The smugglers were armed with bombs, dahs (cleaver-shaped weapon), axes, bamboo sticks among others.
