The Hatichar outpost falls under the 17 Battalion of the BSF which keeps an eye on the movements from Bangladesh."We are yet to find out what led to the argument between the cook and the two ASIs. Almost all the other BSF personnel at Hatichar were out on river patrol in the morning shift when the incident happened," a commandant said requesting anonymity.
Senior officials from the Frontier headquarters have rushed to Dhubri, 282 km west of Guwahati, to assess the situation. This is the third such incident in the BSF during the last few months in the country. Earlier, two BSF jawans were killed in a suspected fratricide incident in Sriganganagar district of Rajasthan in June and two in Punjab.
