In a fresh incident of attack by Bangladeshi criminals, two persons including a  teenager were seriously injured at Pyrkan village near the Indo-Bangla border in Meghalaya on Sunday, police official said. Pyrkan village under Shella assembly constituency is 97 kms away from Shillong, the state capital of Meghalaya and approximately 6 kms from the international Indo-Bangla border.
Preliminary reports said that the incident occurred at around 2:30 pm  when five suspected Bangladeshi nationals entered the Indian territory near the Shella river and attacked Denglang Diengdoh (19) and Harikanto Sargari (21) with sharp objects.
“Diengdoh was grieviouly injured on his head and back with sharp cut injuries while Sargari suffered minor  injuries,” a police official said.
The victims were immediately rushed to Primary Health Centre at Ichamati but doctor at the Centre referred Diengdoh to Shillong Civil hospital.
 This is the third attacked by the Bangladeshi criminals on Indian villagers in Meghalaya.
 Last month, a Border Security Force trooper and an Indian villager were seriously injured at Amdoh village near Rongkum along the Indo-Bangla border after they were attacked by group of 15 Bangladeshi criminals.
The Bangladeshi criminals also attacked five Indian villagers along the Dawki-Nongtalang road on January 3 and 4. They also vandalised the cars of the injured villagers who returned from a marriage party and snatched their valuables, after which they fled to Bangladesh.
Following the two incidents along the international border,Meghalaya Urban Affairs minister, Hamletson Dohling wondered why the BSF troopers did not utilize their arms for self-defence when Bangladeshi criminals attacked them and Indian villagers along the Indo-Bangla border.
