The BSF will hand over a list of around 100 camps of different militant groups located in Bangladesh and seek action against them during a four-day meeting with top BDR commanders in Sylhet beginning Wednesday, official sources said.

The camps are basically 'permanent in nature' and belong to different outfits, including ULFA, NDFB, KLO and PLA, an official in the Tripura sector of BSF told PTI.

The meeting, coming ahead of DG-level talks between both the border-guarding forces, is the first such high-level meeting after the mutiny in BDR headquarters earlier this year.

BSF's Tripura sector Inspector General SK Mishra will be leading the 17-member Indian side which will also include the IGs of Assam-Meghalaya Frontier and Mizoram-Cachar Frontier besides a representative from Union Home Ministry. The Bangladesh side will be headed by the deputy director general (DDG) of BDR, the official said.

The BSF, during the meeting, would also take up the issue of illegal poaching of natural resources from Bangladesh side along the border areas.

Also on the BSF agenda would be obstruction by BDR to developmental works by India along the border area, illegal crossing of the border by Bangladeshis and illegal grazing of Bangladeshi cattle on the Indian side.
