BSF on alert to prevent infiltration from Bangladesh during idol immersion

According to a custom that dates back to the creation of Bangladesh, after Durga Puja ends, the idols of the two countries are carried to the middle of the river from either side. The boats sail on the territorial waters of the other side with the occupants of vessels from one country exchanging greetings of Vijaya Dasami with people in the boats from the other side.
