India on Sunday handed over a list of top Indian criminals and terrorists hiding in Bangladesh and asked Dhaka to step up security along the international border in the wake of the ongoing general elections in the north-east.

A home ministry official told PTI that Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Pinak Ranjan Chakravarty made the request as he called on State Minister for Home Affairs Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj at his office.

"The Indian envoy handed over a list of the (Indian) criminals and terrorists to the state minister," Taj said adding Bangladesh would not allow any foreign elements to use its soil against any of its neighbours.

"We have also requested the authorities to intensify security vigil over them specially until the end of the polls in our eastern states," Chakarvarti said.
