Tripura: BSF stands for Border Security Force and their motto is जीवन पर्यन्त कर्तव्य which means Unity unto Death. But the incident that happened in Tripura raises an eyebrow to our blind faith on BSF.
Sir Jitendra Chaudhury has confirmed the KILLING OF THREE INNOCENT VILLAGERS AT CHITABARI BY THREE BSF JAWANS.
The statement quoted by him was:
KILLING OF THREE INNOCENT VILLAGERS AT CHITABARI. MOST INHUMANE AND BRUTALITY COMMITTED BY THREE BSF JAWANS. CULPRITS MUST BE PUNISHED, WHO TARNISHED THE IMAGE OF THIS ELITE FORCE OF INDIA.
Three innocent and poor villagers, out of which one is a woman, has been killed in BSF’s brutal firing, yesterday on 17th March at Chitabari, Sabroom, South Tripura District.The accused three BSF jawans have no point for their defense to justify their heinous act.
(1)The place of occurrence is more than two kilometers inside from the Indo-Bangla border. Normally, BSF does not have any authority to charge anybody in absence of Police. (2)16 people, 3 of them are women were working in their farmland on the top of a hillock. They are all localities. (3) The stuff is still lying on the road. The deceased woman, who was shot first(according to the eye witnesses) was returning to her home after collecting the same. (4) The blood stain is still visible on the road, which is evidencing they were not hiding or running away. (5)The entire area is fenced by barbed wire, no reason for any kind of border crime.
This unpardonable crime committed by three jawans of 31 Bn. BSF of Bravo Company has to be taken into the possible extent of exemplary punishment. Both Union and State Governments are to come forward for proper rehabilitation of the families of deceased and injured.

On the other hand, online media tripurainfoway has killed the story and built a new story on their own. This was the article which they published:
This is the link to their entire article: http://www.tripurainfoway.com/news-details/TN/79823/tension-prevails-in-tripura-after-3-cattle-smugglers-killed-by-bsf-at-sabroom-chitabari-border-anti-national-cpi-m-politicizing-bsf-rsquo-s-role-called-12-hrs-strike.html
We were very shocked and surprised with the news created by the website. This shows their ignorance towards their work and the unethical practices of obtaining the news from their sources. They should understand the dignity which the media houses carry and should stop with the false information. This also lights up the darker side of the story of the Tripuri community or probably they are not interested in publishing the real news of the Tripuri people. The publishers are mostly doing the duty of defaming the Tripuri community by publishing a wrong information about the poor villagers framing them as cow smugglers. If this incident happened in a non-Tripuri community, the news would have been genuine.
