The Border Security Force (BSF) did something kind beyond their usual job. They arranged for the daughter of a deceased Indian man in Bangladesh to see her father one last time at the India-Bangladesh border.
The BSF’s 68 Battalion, part of the South Bengal Frontier, set up this farewell near the Border Outpost-Madhupur in West Bengal, showing compassion.
A Gram Panchayat Hariharpur member named Aminudeen informed the commander at BOP Madhupur about the natural death of Liyakat Biswas from Hariharpur village. Aminudeen asked for help in letting the daughter, living in Bangladesh, say goodbye before her father’s last rites.
Considering the emotional aspect, the BSF said the commander at Border Outpost-Madhupur quickly reached out to Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) officials without delay, responding to Aminudeen’s request.
The BSF stated, “Following our request, BGB also agreed to help. So, both border forces, putting humanity first, arranged for the deceased person’s family in Bangladesh to see him one last time at the zero line of the International Border.”
The Public Relations Officer of the South Bengal Frontier, BSF, said that BSF members at the border not only protect the country but also care about the feelings of the people there. “They also respect the beliefs and values of the border communities,” he added.
He emphasized that the Border Security Force stands against those with bad intentions but is always ready to help when it comes to humanity and human values.
