A 16-year-old Bengali girl was returned to her family with the coordinated efforts by the border guards of the two countries, a BSF official said on Friday.

The girl, who is a resident of a village close to the international border was abducted from West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district and taken to Bangladesh by a man on March 7, Border Security Force 112 Batallion Commandant Arun Kumar said.

The battalion is deployed at the Hakimpur border outpost.

The news of her abduction reached the BOP and Kumar established contact with his counterpart in the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) on the other side of the border.

He shared information about her with the BGB official and requested him to rescue the girl.

Constant liaison with the BGB and joint efforts of border guards of both the country's ensured the safe return of the girl who was handed over to her family on Thursday, Kumar said.

However, what happened to the accused man is not known.
