The Border Security Force (BSF) has said it has nabbed two people from a village along the India-Bangladesh border in West Bengal and seized an Indian map and 500 tablets of a party drug from them.

“Some places were encircled in the map. We could not decode and have alerted the NIA [National Investigation Agency] officials,” said BSF’s deputy inspector general (South Bengal Frontier) S S Guleria.

The two have been identified as Ruhul Mondol, 27 and Faruk Molla, 38, from Swarupnagar in North 24 Parganas.

The BSF said it has also informed Narcotics Control Bureau about the drugs.

West Bengal shares 2,216 km boder with Bangladesh, the longest international border in any state and also the most porous.
