PTI reports said the officer was attacked by suspected cattle smugglers.

The second-in-command rank officer, Deepak K Mondal, commanding the 145th battalion of the border is said to be critical and has been airlifted to Kolkata for treatment, reported ANI.

The incident happened at about 2 am near the Belardepa border post at the border when the officer was allegedly hit by a four-wheeler being used by the smugglers.

He was patrolling the area with his team to check cattle smuggling and other illegal activities, he said.

It may be recalled that, in September, a BSF head constable was killed allegedly by cattle smugglers in the Angrail area of North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal.
