Bangladesh and India have agreed to stop the use of lethal weapons while guarding at border, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal has said. The decision was taken at a Home Minister level meeting held between Bangladesh and India.
“A meeting of Home Minister and BGB-BSF levels was held between the two countries. In the meeting, the decision was made that border killings would be stopped and lethal weapons would not be used. Even then, some incidents happened from time to time. Everyone is sincere about preventing this from happening,” said the Home Minister after joining a warm cloth distribution programme in Kurigram on Tuesday.
RAB-13 arranged the programme on the eastern bank of Dharla River at noon.
Asaduzzaman Khan said, “Bangladesh and India are a brotherly country. Those who live on the other side of the border have good relations with the people living on the other side of the border.”
“Maybe in the some people crossed the border without knowing anything about it. And someone does it which shouldn’t be done. One or two incidents happen often for this reason.”
The Home Minister distributed winter clothes among more than 1,000 distressed people at the programme.
State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Ministry Md Zakir Hossain, Kurigram-4 constituency MP Aslam Hossain Saudagar and RAB) director general Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun were, among others, present.
