Felani Murder Case to be reviewed soon: BSF Addl DG

The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) will start the process of reviewing the Bangladeshi girl Felani Khatun Murder Case soon.

“We would start to review the Felani Khatun Murder Case soon, although we could not begin the process so far,” said B D Sharma, Additional Director General of BSF at a media interaction on Friday.

When asked, Mr. Sharma could not give any specific time as to when the process would start.

FelaniFelani, 15, was shot dead by BSF man Amiya Ghosh while she was entering Bangladesh over the barbed-wire fence along Anantapur border point in Kurigram district on January 7, 2011.

On September 6, the special court, constituted by the BSF, in its verdict acquitted the lone accused, BSF constable Amiya Ghosh, of the charge of killing Felani.

The killing had evoked huge outrage in both Bangladesh and India after her body was seen hanging from the fence.

Later, the Bangladesh government appealed before the Indian court for reviewing the judgment.
