BSF JAWAN SACRIFICES LIFE WHILE TRYING TO PREVENT TRANS–BORDER CRIMES
Late Constable Vivek Tiwari of 159 Bn BSF has put a shining example of duty unto death and sacrificed his life at the altar of duty while performing duties at Hariya Nallah area in the early morning hours of 10 Jan 2022. On watching the cattle being smuggled across the Hariya Nallah he challenged the criminals by firing from his rifle and alerted his buddy who was about 80 mtrs away. In dense fog he tried to chase the criminals on his own in the nallah without waiting for his buddy but he was overpowered by the criminals and drowned in the nallah.
BSF recognizes outstanding valour & devotion to the duty of Braveheart Late Constable Vivek Tiwari in challenging the criminals single-handedly to prevent trans-border crimes in dense foggy conditions without caring for his own life. The mortal remains of Late Constable Vivek Tiwari was given a tearful send-off yesterday from Aradhpur HQ 159 Bn BSF to his native place Village- Mahuvi Sherpur, Distt Azmgarh, Uttar Pradesh in the presence of Shri Sudhir Hooda, DIG Malda and Shri Harsh Nandan Joshi, Commandant 159 Bn after bestowing full force honours. He is survived by his pregnant wife and 01-year-old daughter.
There has been an increase in the trans-border crimes in Malda district in the last one month. Criminals from both sides of the border are desperately trying to take advantage of the dense fog to carry out their nefarious activities. A case of culpable homicide has been registered with Police Station Bamangola, Malda to identify the culprits and bring them to justice.
This is really unfortunate that India losing their Braveheart boys at the border of a So-called friendly country. Sometimes order from the higher authorities makes it difficult to retaliate at the ground zero of the action. BSF should have more power to address external and internal criminals with free hands.
But, escalating minor issues cost a huge for the bilateral relations. We feel that the Home ministry and national security groups must think and raise the issue with Bangladesh to avoid such unfortunate incidents in the future. This kind of tied hands make it difficult for BSF and team to execute the duties, even morale gets lower among boys because of nonaggressive orders by authorities. Even BSF high officials confessed the same during personal interactions but can not comment as a law abiding disciplined defense team member.
We request all concerns to stand by our Braveheart boys at the borders.
