BDR trying to encroach on Indian land: BSF

Bangladesh Rifles has been making attempts to encroach on Indian territory and obstructing Indian farmers from cultivating their land, the BSF said on Sunday.



Shillong: Bangladesh Rifles has been making attempts to encroach on Indian territory and
obstructing Indian farmers from cultivating their land, the BSF said on Sunday.

"There have been numerous occasions during the last six months when BDR fired at Indian nationals to prevent them from cultivating their land. BDR has been trying to encroach on Indian territory following such firing," a BSF statement said here.

Claiming that Indian villagers have been cultivating their land well inside Indian territory since decades, the BSF said the Bangladesh border guards have been resorting to
unprovoked firing to terrorise the border populace.

Accusing the BDR of providing Bangladesh media "concocted information" to malign the image of the BSF, it said the border guards of the neighbouring country were trying
to sensationalise the issue of adverse possession of land.
