Burma Force Kills
Burma's border security force Nasaka,
shot and killed a Bangladeshi fisherman Wednesday on the Naff River, shortly after he was arrested from a fishing boat,
according to a Bangladesh newspaper report.
The report claimed that Nasaka
troops suddenly intruded into the Bangladesh waters of the Naff River, firing several shots and arresting the victim on a
fishing boat. Other fishermen who were fishing in the area managed to flee from
the Nasaka force.
Nasaka officers brought the Bangladeshi fisherman to the
Burmese side and later shot and killed him.
Bangladesh border authorities asked Nasaka
for the body of the fisherman to be handed over to Bangladesh authorities, but Nasaka has
not yet replied to the request.
The paper reported that the fisherman was Mr.
Boshi Armad, aged 40, from Falonkhali Village in Okia Township of Cox's Bazar District of Bangladesh
