The deceased was identified as Fatik, 30, son of Abdul Latif of village Sundarpur Bogdanga in the upazila.

Fellow traders rescued the injured and sent him to Rajshahi Medical College Hospital on Thursday where he died in the early hours of Friday, he added.
The Border Guard Bangladesh battalion-53 deputy commander Major Ekhlasur Rahman said they had held a flag meeting with the BSF on Friday morning to protest at the firing on the Bangladeshi cattle trader.
The BSF, however, denied shooting Fatik, he said.
