On the night of July 17, 2008, a speedboat and an engine-run boat of the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) crossed the border near Roghunathpur of Shibganj, Chapainawabganj, one and a half kilometres into Bangladesh on the Padma river shared by Bangladesh and India. At around 11.45 pm, when a patrol boat of Bangladesh Rifles (BDR)1 tried to enclose the Indian intruders, the speedboat managed to escape and a BSF officer fired from the engine-run boat towards the BDR officers. BDR officers Abdul Hannan and Krishnapada Pal were killed as a result of the shootings.
