However, statistics have shown no sign of a downward trend in border killings over the past eight years. “There can be many reasons behind border killings, but the discussions between the border guards of both countries took place to find a solution. Hossain suggested that India deploy Bangla speaking BSF officials at the border, if possible, and that BSF officials face punitive action if they are found guilty of border killings. BGB Director General Major General Md Shafeenul Islam said both BGB and BSF had agreed in their discussions to stop border killings, since killings had a psychological impact on people.
