The Border Security Force along the Indo-Bangla border in Meghalaya and Assam have been put on alert for the ensuing assembly elections in Meghalaya.

Apprehending that anti-national elements may try to infiltrate into the state for carrying out subversive activities to disrupt the election process, BSF Inspector General of Police PK Mishra on Monday said all the troops along the border have been instructed to be extra vigilant to thwart any attempt of infiltration into the country.

The BSF has also requested the civil population residing along the border areas to co-operate with the BSF and inform any unkown person were seen moving in the border areas.

The BSF has also set up additional patrol bases along the border to enhance the vigil.
