The Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) lodged a protest with the BSF against the unwarranted action and was trying to resolve the issue through discussions, official sources said.

The BSF has re-imposed a new rule that the 15,000 Bangladeshis living in the two villages can move through the corridor with the maximum number of only 20 cattle a day.

Most people of the two Bangladeshi villages depend on animal husbandry and livestock, and they sell their animals and poultry birds to the mainland markets at Patgram.

The BSF had imposed a complete ban on movement of Bangladeshis with cattle through the corridor on September 2 after a group of Indian miscreants intruded into the two Bangladeshi villages and tried to loot cows.

The BSF then blamed a national of Dahogram and his some Indian colleagues, who were allegedly engaged in cross-border smuggling that led to the BSF action.
