Kolkata, September 14
A BSF jawan today lost his life at Gaighata area in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal when he was hit by a car being allegedly used for cow smuggling across the international border with Bangladesh.
BSF sources said five cows were loaded in an Indica car by the traffickers. Tushar Kanti Das, a BSF head constable belonging to the 64 battalion of the paramilitary force, sensed something was amiss and challenged the driver. The driver knocked him down but lost control of the vehicle which hit a roadside barrier. While one of the cows died in the crash, the driver managed to flee.
Arindam Mukherjee, officer in charge of the Gaighata police station, said he had received information about a BSF jawan getting killed in an accident but was not aware of the details. He said he had not received any written complaint from the BSF. However, RPS Jaisawal, DIG and BSF spokesperson, confirmed the incident and said the process to register a FIR had been initiated by the BSF. — TNS
