Naogaon: Unfortunately cruelty also has its various forms. Members of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) have showed that when they tortured a Bangladeshi youth by removing the nails of his fingers along the Patari border here early Saturday.

The victim was identified as Azim Uddin, 20, son of Kabir Uddin of Tulsidanga village in Sapahar upazila, reports the UNB. 

Locals said Azim went to India along with some other cattle traders on Friday night to bring cattle.

BSF men from Rangamati camp under Bamankhola district chased them while they were returning home along with cattle, said Commanding Officer of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Battalion-16 Lt Col Tuhin Mohammad Masud.

The border force caught Azim and took him to their camp, he said.

The BSF members tortured him inhumanly and extracted the nails from all the fingers of the youth, the BGB official said.

As Azim fell unconscious following the torture, they abandoned him at the Zero Point of the Purnavora River.

Around 5am, a patrol team of the BGB battalion spotted unconscious Azim and took him to Upazila Health Complex, said Masud.
