Cooch Behar, 21st May: In a foiled attempt to smuggle cattle, a miscreant was severely injured after an intervention by the Border Security Force (BSF) on the Indo-Bangladesh border at Gitaldaha in Dinhata on Tuesday morning. The injured has been identified as Suryajit Barman (30), a resident of the Parmanand area of Dakshin Kharija village in Gitaldaha.
