With this protest a lot of pressure has been created on Bangladesh Government to protest it officially. Press, media and all peaceful action has been taken by Bangladeshi people to create this pressure on Bangladeshi Government.

A note verbale protesting the "brutal and senseless killing" was handed over to Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Rajeet Mitter at the foreign ministry on January 17th, 2011 when he met acting foreign secretary Mostafa Kamal. Sahara Khatun, home minister of Bangladesh promised to make a strong protest in home secretary-level meeting with India this month (January 2011).

On Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 an article by Brad Adams has been published on guardian about the ruthless BSF and their idiotic actions.

A report has been made by banglanews24 which is about suspension of two BSF members and recall of associate contingent in Felani murder to base but it seems to be a rumor because no reliable source has confirmed it.

But this coward BSF was not kept silent in between 7th to 24th January; they killed another man named Rashu. On Saturday, January 15th 2011 they kidnapped man when he was gossiping with his Indian friend at morning. His friend was on Indian land and Rashu was on Bangladeshi Land and between them there is Barbed Wire Fence (Masudpur Border of Chapainawabgonj). Suddenly BSF kidnapped Rashu and took to their camp at Shuvapur. Two hours later they drop Rashu to the land of Bangladesh, but before that they broke two legs of Rashu and 2/3 place of left hand. Rashu left us on 15th January night for eternal peace at Rajshahi Medical College.

Human Rights organization Manabadhikar Suraksa Manch from India also protest against the cruelty of BSF. Chairman of this organization Kiriti Ray said that there is no rule to kill people by shoot at India, whether it is India or another Law Enforcement Organization. But BSFs are not obeying rule. But almost every day they are killing Bangladeshi people. In every case they show the same reason Bangladeshi Smugglers, they attack BSF first. The chairman rise the question "Was this girl smuggler? She was tangled, how can she attack BSF?"

Some protest has also been made in the district of Koch Bihar, India. Secretary of Association for Protection of Democratic Rights - APDR Suman Goshwami started to make people awareness against this ruthless action of BSF inside India.

According to Moktar Ahmed, member, Amnesty International not only BSFs are killing Bangladeshi People but also they are killing Indian farmers at Border area. They(BSF) become maniac. Letters are send to Indian government regularly but no result.

In the word of Reporter Amit Bose - the photo accompanied report of Felani killing hurts every audience of the report. If anyone illegally crosses the border then punishment should be according to the law. But such an incident of killing unarmed people by BSF has destroyed the so called human rights powered face of India.

I agree. It was totally the BSF's fault. As an Indian I am ashamed.

But please do not blame the people of my country. We ourselves would be shot if we did something like this.

If you were crossing the border to China or Pakistan, the chance of getting killed would be the same.

These are dangerous places to be. As much as we detest this killing, the military is there to kill people who cross the border. It is not something we Indians like.
