In the video the victim is seen on the ground with his hands and feet tied as the men in uniform torture and strip him. It shows three to four BSF personnel stripping and then beating a lungi-clad man, his hands tied behind his back in the incident that reportedly took place on Dec 9. Media reports say the man is suspected to be a Bangladeshi.
Top officers of the Border Security Force say they are investigating the matter and promise swift action. "The prima facie finding is that some BSF personnel were indeed involved. Investigations on and action will be taken tonight," Ravi Kumar Ponoth, BSF's Inspector-General for South Bengal told NDTV. Eight Border Security Force jawans have been suspended over the incident. The suspended personnel have been identified as Constables Virender Tiwari, V S Victor, Dhananjay Kumar, Anand Singh, Amar Jyoti, Sanjeev Kumar, Suresh Chand and Sunil Kumar.
BSF said on Wednesday night that the incident had taken place in Pashchimbanga's Murshidabad district along the Indo-Bangla border and investigation was ongoing, India's state-run news agency PTI said.
Villagers told NDTV that the video was intentionally shot by the BSF troopers and distributed among the people to instill fear among them.
Another theory on how the video came to light is that a cyber cafe owner downloaded the footage from a BSF man's cellphone when he visited the cafe to download music.
In 2010, human rights group Odhikar and Human Rights Watch reported that the BSF had killed some 1,000 Bangladeshis over the last decade.
After Felani, 15, was shot dead by BSF troops on Jan 7 last year, while she was returning to Bangladesh with her father. The body was snapped dangling on a barbed fence, causing uproar.
