Online Desk : A constable of the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) shot two of his colleagues in North Bengal late on Monday at evening in one of the case of fratricide in paramilitary forces, report Indian media on Tuesday.
The accused surrendered later and was handed over to the police.
“Inspector Mahendra Singh Bhatti and constable Anuj Kumar had were shot by constable Uttam Sutradhar. They died on the spot. Sutradhar surrendered several hours later,” said Sumit Kumar, superintendent of police, Uttar Dinajpur district.
The three BSF personnel had been on responsibility alongside the Indo-Bangladesh border at Raiganj police station in North Dinajpur district on Monday evening.
They were connected to the Maldakhand border outpost of BSF’s 146 battalion.
Whereas Sutradhar belongs to Tripura, slain Bhatti and Kumar hailed from Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, respectively.

“The corporate commander reached the spot and the constable surrendered to him at around 3:00am. The victims neither had any quarrel nor scuffle with the accused. The reason for firing shall be ascertained after the conduct of a probe,” said Rajeev Ranjan Sharma, deputy inspector of BSF, North Bengal Frontier.
The bodies were sent for autopsy and Sutradhar was handed over to the police, he added.
