2 Bangladeshi guards killed, 1 Indian soldier injured in border clash

A border clash Friday left two Bangladeshi troops dead and one Indian soldier seriously wounded, military officials said. The clash occurred when an Indian border patrol vessel tried to prevent cattle from being smuggled into Bangladesh on a boat, said Ashish Kumar Mitra, the head of India's Border Security Force. The director of operations of the Bangladesh Rifles border force gave a different version. He said the Indian BSF patrol boat entered Bangladeshi waters and when a Bangladeshi Rifles vessel challenged them to leave, the Indians opened fire. The incident took place off the coast of Raghunathpur in Chapainawabganj district, 145 miles west of Dhaka. Bangladesh Rifles arrested the injured Indian citizen, Anjam Hossain, and seized a boat at the scene, he said.
