On 6th July 2013, Constable Surendra Singh of 121 Bn BSF was performing patrolling duty near IBB fence along with other personnel. At about 2040 hrs, 40-50 heavily armed Indian and Bangladeshi Miscreants/Smugglers who were trying to smuggle a large number of cattle (appx 40-50) were challenged by a BSF Patrol party. The miscreants armed with lethal weapons like dah, lathi and cutting pliers attacked the patrolling party and tried to snatch their weapons. In the scuffle, one round of PAG hit Constable Surendra Singh from close range. Constable Surendra Singh was immediately evacuated to MGM Hospital, Kishanganj where he was declared brought dead.
