The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) reportedly shot down a Bangladeshi national along the Thakurpur border in Chuadanga's Damurhuda Upazila early on Sunday.
The deceased was identified as Omedul Islam, 26, son of Shahidul Islam of Thakurpur village.
Mohammad Khalekuzzaman, director of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB)-6, said the BSF members opened fire on some Bangladeshis when they, along with Omedul, went to the zero point. Omedul died on the spot.
However, the BGB is preparing to send a letter to BSF protesting against the incident, he said.
