A 17-year-old girl Selina Khatun, who went missing from her house at Kumilla in Bangladesh around one-and-a-half years ago, returned home on Wednesday with the help of jawans and senior officers of the Border Security Force (BSF).   

Selina was 15-year-old when she went missing. During a vacation, she went to her grandfather’s house at Shibganj in Bangladesh. 

From there Selina went to swim in the Purnabhaba river where she fell unconscious. Later she was found at Habibpur in Malda. 

Local people of Habibpur and BSF jawans had rescued Selina and they admitted her to a hospital. 

She gained her consciousness a few days after the treatment. However, she had failed to recollect details about her family members and residence. 

The BSF officers had arranged better treatment for the girl and she gradually recovered. A month ago she remembered that she is a resident of Kumilla in Bangladesh. Selina later narrated the story to jawans that how she went missing. 

The BSF jawans, the district administration and an NGO talked to Bangladesh government and made arrangements to send Selina back to her parents. 

Her parents were delighted to know that their daughter was under the supervision of BSF and they had also approached Bangladesh government to do the needful. 

It took some time to complete the legal procedures and finally on Wednesday Selina was handed over to the police officers of Shibganj police station in Bangladesh where her parents were also present. 

Her parents thanked the BSF jawans for everything they did to provide treatment to their daughter, for her safety and mainly for the help to get her back. 

Selina too assured the BSF jawans, officials of the district and the NGO that she will bring gifts for all. 

A BSF jawan said their main task was to guard the border and they do their job for the safety of the people. 

Thus there is nothing more than humanity.  

It may be mentioned that BSF had earlier handed over many fishermen from Bangladesh those had mistakenly crossed the border while catching fish.
