Deputy Leader of the opposition Badal Chowdhury wrote a latter to the Chief Minister Biplab Kr Deb on Thursday demanding Judicial enquiry by a sitting of retired High Court Judge on connection to the killing of Jashim Miah in BSF firing at Debipur under South Tripura District on February 1. “The family members of the Jashim Miah and others narrated that Khaleq Muah, father of the victim jashim miah on the morning of February 1 last went out with his cow and tied it with border fence for grazing about 100 meter away from his house. Earlier also he did it many times. While coming back on that day he was charged by two BSF jawans on duty alleging that he was smuggling cows to Bangladesh. Inspite of denial of allegation he was beaten up by the jawans grievously. Khaleq Muah came back home. Hearing the incident Jashim Muah and Washim Miah both sons of khaleq Miah, Norbaha Begam, Hanif Miah, wife and wife’s brother of Khaleq respectively and Amina Akhtar another relative went near fence where two BSF Jawans were on duty. They wanted to know why an old man like khaleq was physically was assaulted for nothing by them. Hearing hue and cry Bikash Mandal the commander of BSF Debipur BOP came to the spot and he instead of trying to pacify the situation shouting Goli Maro Goli Maro. Than and than the BSF jawan who came with Mandal fired at Jashim Miah targeting upper body and in point blank range. No sooner Jashim fell down. Blood clad jashim was hurriedly carried to Belonia hospital where he died in few minutes. The incident of firing were seen by some other villagers also from a little distance” said Badal Chowdhury. In his latter Badal also writes that Jashim was the only graduate of their community in that locality. He appeared TPSC ob 2017 and also was selected in written test for SI post. As BJP-IPFT government didn’t give appointment to those posts Jashim Miah was earning from private tution. He was most favourite to most of the villagers cutting across the Hindu and Muslims. He used to play cricket also with the BSF jawans of Debipur BOP in the nearby school field.
