BSF and Bangladesh border guards agree to resolve pending issues, strengthen ties
The Border Security Force (BSF) and Bangladesh Border Guards (BGB) have agreed to initiate pre-emptive measures to maintain peace and tranquillity along the Indo-Bangla international border by acting against cross border crimes among others.
“Various ideas and concepts related to border issues were discussed. We have decided to act against the cross-border crimes and agreed to solve all the pending issues and strengthen the friendship bond between the two countries,” said BSF IG Sushanta Kumar Nath on Friday at BSF headquarters at Shalbagan, not far from Agartala.
Both the BSF and BGB discussed trans-border crimes and preventive measures, construction of a single row fence along the Indo-Bangla international border during a two days long Inspector General-level border coordination conference that began on November 25.
Tripura shares 856 kilometres long border with Bangladesh and some parts of it are yet to be fenced.
“We have agreed to maintain vigilance in the vulnerable areas and act to curtail border crimes including human trafficking, smuggling etc. The outcomes of the conference will further make our bond strong,” said BGB additional director general Khondoker Farid Hassan.
