Three Bangladeshi nationals suspected to be cattle lifters were lynched by locals in Assam’s Karimganj district on Saturday midnight. Four others who had come along with the deceased persons managed to escape from the area under the cover of darkness. The incident took place at Bhubrighat Tea Estate under Patharkandi police station near the Indo-Bangladesh border. According to the reports, a group of seven people from Bangladesh had entered the area to steal cows. The villagers caught three among the group when they had made an attempt to steal cows and proceeded to beat them up. All three succumbed to their injuries. Karimganj district Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Prasanta Dutta said that the group entered the area from the Bangladesh side to steal cows. “Local villagers caught hold of three in the group while they were trying to steal cows. All three persons died in the attack by the locals. Our police team found three dead bodies inside Bhubrighat tea estate,” the police officer said. Police also recovered fence-cutters, rope, bag, wires, biscuits and bread manufactured in Bangladesh from the site. The Karimganj district administration has informed higher authorities about the incident and the process is on to hand the bodies over to Bangladeshi authorities through the Border Security Force (BSF).
