Bangladesh authorities say eight Bangladeshi villagers have been wounded during a skirmish between the border guards from Bangladesh and India.
Maj. Kohinoor Alam, a border guard official of Bangladesh, says the skirmish occurred on Sunday after Indian border security force opened fire on Bangladeshi villagers along the north-eastern Jaintapur frontier.
He says the Indian guards fired as the Bangladeshi villagers tried to prevent dozens of Indian villagers from fishing in a pond inside Bangladesh territory. Bangladeshi guards responded with fire. Comment from the Indian side was not immediately available.
