A BSF soldier was beaten to death by suspected infiltrators near the Bangladesh border in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district.

The deceased jawan has been identified as Gobind Singh. The incident took place in Dakshinpara area of the district.

A similar incident was reported in April this year, when a BSF jawan sustained severe injuries after being beaten up by intruders in Bihar's Kishanganj district. The BSF inspector had said that over a dozen Bangladeshi infiltrators had attacked the BSF jawan, while they were trying to cross the border, according to Navbharat Times.
