Kurigram: Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir on Saturday lamented that the Felani murder verdict has failed to deliver justice.
“We had wanted a proper solution from the Indian authorities to border killing….Indian border guards were produced before court as per the BSF law,” he said.
The Home Minister further said: “The justice what we had expected about Felani was not ensured in the preliminary decision of the court,” MK Alamgir said while talking to journalists after laying the foundation stone of Nageshawari thana building in Nageshwari upazila on Saturday.
“The killing of Felani is a shameful and tragic incident for both the countries-Bangladesh and India,” he said.
He said they have not yet got the detailed report on the verdict. ” There’ll be a formal reaction from Bangladesh government once the report will be there in our hands.”
Felani Khatun, 15, was shot dead by a BSF man while she was entering Bangladesh over the barbed-wire fences along Anantapur border point in Kurigram district on January 7, 2011, triggering a huge outcry around the globe.
The special court, constituted by the Border Security Force of India, in its verdict on Friday acquitted the lone accused, BSF constable Amiya Ghosh, of the charge of killing Felani.
