Shillong: A sector commander-level border
co-ordination meeting between Border Security Force and Border
Guards Bangladesh on Friday agreed to share real time information
to nab trans-border criminals and militants on either side of
the international border.

The two-day meet which concluded today at Tura in
Meghalaya took up various issues concerning border management
in a bid to maintain cordial relations and mutual
understanding to create an environment of peace and
tranquility on both sides of the border, an official statement
said.
Tura Sector DIG of BSF raised the issue concerning Indian
insurgents activities in Bangladesh and stressed on more
efforts from the neighbouring country to nab them.

"Besides trans-border crime committed by Bangladeshi
nationals/criminals, prevention of smuggling of cattle, fake
Indian currency notes and other items, poaching of Indian
natural resources by Bangladesh nationals from Indian
territory were also discussed," they said.

The BGB sector commander assured positive response from
their side on all issues.

Confidence building measures and the proposed reopening
of the Border Haat (market) at Kalaichar in West Garo Hills
was also discussed.
The BGB raised issues regarding killing of unarmed
Bangladeshi nationals by law enforcing agencies, early
repatriation and return of convicted nationals, arrest and
apprehension of Bangladeshi nationals by BSF, smuggling of
various types of drugs/narcotics including phensedyle, wine
and cannabis from India to Bangladesh.

The BSF denied killing any unarmed Bangladeshi national,
saying only when somebody crosses the border at night with
criminal intention, the BSF personnel resort to preventive
measures in self defence.
