A scheduled flag meeting between BGP and Bangladesh Border Guard has been cancelled. There is a chance that another will take place soon.
The meeting was supposed to take place at 10.30 am on Thursday. The release of the captured Bangladesh soldier was supposed to be discussed in the meeting.
Higher authorities of BGP cancelled the meeting for unknown reasons.
On Wednesday dawn at around 5.30 am, the Bangladesh Border Guard team of three soldiers were looking for a boat full of yaba tablets after being alerted to their presence.
As they were on the search mission, they asked a suspicious looking boat to stop. The boat was however full of BGP soldiers who fired upon on the Bangladeshis.
The firing injured one Bangladesh soldier and another was kidnapped by BGP. The third soldier dove into the water and managed to escape the BGP.
