Over two and half years into the incident, the trial of the murder of Bangladeshi girl Felani began on Tuesday at the BSF special court in Cooch Behar.
Felani, a 15-year-old girl, was shot dead by the BSF men while she was entering Bangladesh over the barbed-wire fences along Anantapur border point in the district on January 7, 2011.
Amid the BGB's consistent efforts, the BSF headquarters formed the General Security Force Court to punish those responsible for the incident after an investigation.
After the investigation, the BSF submitted the charge sheet against its constable Amiya Ghosh who shot the Bangladeshi innocent girl.
Felani who used to work as a domestic help in New Delhi along with her father was returning home from India on January 7, 2011 to tie her knot.
Although her father crossed into Bangladesh by scaling the barbed-wire fence, she failed to do so as her clothes got entangled with the barbed wires.
Later, she was shot dead by a BSF team.
