The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Tuesday expressed grave concern at the abduction of BGB Nayek Abdur Razzak by Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) and the delay in returning him.

On June 17, BGP opened fire on a Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) patrol boat in Teknaf of Cox’s Bazar district. BGB sepoy Biplob Kumar suffered bullet wounds in the firing.

Later, the BGP men took away Abdur Razzak. However, the Myanmar authorities are yet to return him.

Condemning the incident, the NHRC described it as the utter violation of human rights, and urged Myanmar to hand over the BGB Nayek to Bangladesh immediately.
