On 25.3.2012, the above mentioned persons with few another were returning from Padma Bhaban at Jalangi after attending a medical camp organized by MASUM on the aegis of United Nations Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture (UNVFVT). After having medical treatment they were on their way to home. From Sheikhpara they hired a three wheeler van rickshaw from one Mr. Sushil Mondal, son of Late Kalipada Mondal of Village- Harudanga, to reach their homes. At 5.00 pm, they were intercepted by 4 on duty BSF personnel at Kaharpara BSF BOP Company Head Quarter’s Out Post No.1 in the vicinity of three way crossing Kaharpara- Char Harudanga and Char Bansgara, near the Iron Bridge. They stopped the vehicle and started searching. They brought down the passengers and started indiscriminate beating without any provocation. They tried to pull down clothing from the bodies of the women and verbally abused with filthiest language having sexual connotation. The BSF personnel threaten the person and said ‘you are making campaigns against BSF’. They called the in -charge of Kaharpara BOP – Company Head Quarter from their mobiles. The in -charge came at the spot by a Maruti Gypsy Van and after reaching the spot severely hurled his stick and beaten the said persons. The victims were carrying visuals (printed flexes) on the said programme and for promotional about medical facilities for torture victims having logo of UNVFVT & MASUM. Mrs. Bhanubati Mondal had 8 visuals and Mr. Baidya Nath Mondal 2 on their hands. They snatched the visuals from Bhanubati’s hand and dragged Mr. Baidyanath Mondal to the said BSF vehicle and later brought to the mentioned out post. Baidyanath experienced the brutalities of BSF while in their captivity. He was slapped, pounced and kicked. After a couple of hours, the BSF personnel let him to go without framing any charge or sending to the police station. The old man lost his ability to hear due to the beating.
I informed the incident to Superintendent of Police- Murshidabad and Company Commander of BSF 91 BN through a sms at 9.50 pm from my mobile phone.
This act of vandalism and torture is only aiming to dishearten the echoing protests of common villagers against continuing intimidation and illegal acts of posted Border Security Force at the area.
On 26.3.2012, the tortured persons got medical treatment and their injuries have been recorded. They also made a written complaint to Raninagar police station. 
I demand for an urgent notice over the incident and thorough inquiry of the same by your Commission. The victims must be protected and compensated through your recommendation.     
Sincerely Yours
