SHILLONG, Nov 22: The Border Security Force (BSF) has asked its Bangladesh counterpart, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) to flush out Indian insurgent groups operating from their territory.
“We took up security related issues, particularly about presence of Indian Insurgent groups like GNLA, ULFA, HNLC, NDFB, NLFT in Bangladesh territory with documentary proofs,” the BSF said today.
It may be noted that recently a BSF delegation went to Sylhet, Bangladesh to attend a conference with the BGB to discuss various issues related to border magement.
The BSF delegation was led by Sudesh Kumar, Inspector General, BSF, Meghalaya Frontier.
During the conference, the BSF also took up the commission of trans-border crimes like smuggling of fake Indian currency notes, forest produce, cattle theft , robbery and other crimes in Indian territory committed by Bangladeshi tiols / crimils.
The issue of construction of Single Row Fence within 150 yards from the intertiol border was also deliberated upon for obtaining clearance from Bangladesh Government.
Meanwhile, the BGB conveyed their concerns in connection with firing, killing and injuring of urmed Bangladeshi tiols by Indian miscreants and smuggling of various types of drugs / rcotics including Phensedyle and liquor into Bangladesh.
However, the BSF refuted the allegations of killing of Bangladeshi tiols by Indian villagers and intimated that when the Bangladeshi crimils illegally enter into Indian territory for committing dacoity and theft or any other illegal activities, the villagers retaliated.
Moreover, the BSF also conveyed the BGB authorities to discourage Bangladeshi tiols to cross the intertiol boundary in order to avoid any confrontation with peace loving Indian bordering population.
The BSF also emphasized on joint efforts by both the border guarding forces to curb all the illegal activities across the border.
Both the border guarding forces agreed to look into each other’s perspective on border problems with an open mind and shown belief that the conference will bolster the ongoing good relations between the two forces.
