Tripura villagers detain 3 Bangladeshi soldiers allegedly trying to kidnap Indian man: Report

After the RAB paratroopers were taken to a nearby BSF post, the BSF officials reportedly held a flag meeting with the Border Guards of Bangladesh (BGB) officials later in the afternoon.

In Tripura’s Sipahijala district, 3 Bangladeshi soldiers were detained by villagers allegedly for trying to kidnap an Indian man. As per a report in The Hindu, villagers near the India-Bangladesh border confronted three Bangladeshi soldiers in plainclothes trying to enter the village and kidnap an Indian man.

The Bangladeshi soldiers reportedly belonged to the Rapid Action Batallion (RAB). The incident occurred near the border pillar number 2059 near Kalamchara. At around 9 am on Thursday, villagers reportedly caught the Bangladeshi soldiers in the village and beat them up.

As the news of the detained Bangladeshi soldiers spread, BSF personnel rushed to the spot and rescued the RAB paratroopers. The Bangladeshi soldiers were then taken to the Ashabari border outpost on the Indian side.

The villagers stated that the paratroopers had come to kidnap one Abu Khayer. Khayer’s mother had passed away in the early hours of Thursday.
