BSF to step up vigil on Indo-Bangla border

BSF officials were today asked to maintain close surveillance along the 856-km long porous Indo-Bangla border in Tripura, official sources said.

Raman Srivastava, Director-General of BSF, who arrived here on a two-day visit, held series of meetings with top BSF officials of the state and visited two border outposts (BOP) besides meeting the Governor and the Chief Minister.

Sources said, during meeting with the officials, the DG directed all officials to maintain a close vigilance in the border areas so that no unwanted elements could enter into the Indian territory from the neighbouring Bangladesh.

He would tomorrow visit two air-maintained BOPs in the North Tripura district and interact with jawans and officials.

The visit assumes significance in view of the mounting pressure on Bangladeshi security force on the Indian insurgents using their soil for conducting subversive activities in Indian territories.

BSF sources said, the official was also apprised about the outcome of the Inspector-General level meeting held recently in Sylhat in the first week of this month.

BSF had nabbed Ulfa’s self-appointed finance secretary Chitraban Hazarika and self-styled foreign secretary Shashadhar Chowdhury along the Bangladesh border in West Tripura district this month. — PTI
