From A Correspondent
Dhubri, Jan 2: Smuggling of cattle-heads has been increasing along the Indo-Bangladesh border in the Dhubri sector since the past few months. It is reported that the smugglers smuggle cattle-heads by using the riverine path of the Brahmaputra river in Mankachar-Sukhchar areas under South Salmara subdivision. The smugglers carry cattle-heads through trucks along the NH-31 through the Assam-Bangladesh border at Boxirhat. They even drive away cattle through the interior routes of the Assam-Bangladesh border at night to avoid checking by the police. Though the BSF engaged in the border sometimes mage to seize the cattle at the time of crossing the border, but they often fail to arrest the smugglers as they flee from the scene under the cover of darkness.
