GUWAHATI: On Tuesday, December 27, after firing multiple rounds of ammunition at Bangladeshi criminals, there was a shooting incident reported close to the India-Bangladesh border in Assam's Karimganj district.
In the Karimganj district's Nilambazar police station area, around a kilometer from the international border, the incident happened.
According to accounts, criminal Bangladeshi thugs from this region have been sneaking into India illegally at night to steal cows from people's houses in adjacent villages for the previous few days.

Accordingly, on December 27, police learned from unnamed sources that a gang of four people from Bangladesh had crossed into India with the intention of stealing cows.
In addition, a police squad headed by Karimganj DSP Gitartha Sharma hurried to the scene late at night on the basis of confidential information.
While stealing cows from the Indian border, Bangladeshi criminals were caught in the act, and the authorities ordered them to turn themselves in, but they disobeyed the order.
The cops opened fire on them multiple times when they began to run, but no injuries have yet been reported.
"They used the fact that the area was coated in mud to their advantage and left the scene. Even though we didn't get a chance to catch them, we started searching the area and found a sharp weapon, sandals, rope, animals that had been stolen, and many other things. The search is still ongoing, according to DSP GD Sarma.
Additionally, On December 15 after midnight, seven Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended while attempting to cross into Indian territory at the international boundary between India and Bangladesh in Tripura.
