Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, BGB and BSF chief level discussion is going on to solve the problem centering the incident of killing one BSF member by BGB firing.

He said this to the newsmen after attending a program at the National Press Club on Friday.

The Home Minister said, you certainly know that there is a very good relation between Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and Border Security Force (BSF). We all are extremely saddened following the sudden accident. To solve the problem discussion at the chief level of two forces is going on.

Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said, there is a ban on hilsa fishing in our rivers. Movement of the fishermen is under control at the moment. Suddenly BGB saw that some fishermen were fishing in the river. When they were challenged it was known that they were Indian nationals. They intruded 5 to 6 hundred yards into Bangladesh border. There were some BSF members. At that time BGB said, as you have entered into Bangladesh so we will handover you after holding flag meeting. In this situation they tried to escape hurriedly on a speed boat. At that time BSF opened fire and then BGB retaliated and thus the incident occurred.
