Agartala: Following arrest of two top
insurgents of United Liberation Front of Assam (Ulfa), Border
Security Force has intensified it`s vigil and stepped up
patrolling along the 856 km long porous border with
Bangladesh, official sources said on Sunday.

Vigil along the border has been intensified following
arrest of Shashadhar Chowdhury and Chitraban Hazarika, two top
insurgent leaders of Ulfa in border areas of West Tripura
district and all the border outposts were alerted so that no
one could sneak into Indian territory, sources said.

BSF earlier, in a statement said that the religious
fundamentalists were using the Tripura border as corridor to
enter Indian territory.

DIG, Police Control, Nepal Das said, "mobile forces of
the state police in bordering areas, including markets, have
been intensified and the police stations near the Indo-Bangla
border have been alerted because of the possibility of more
insurgents sneaking into our territory can not be ruled out."

He said, after the present Awami League dispensation
under Sheikh Hasina came to power in Bangladesh, many
insurgents of the two banned outfits -- All Tripura Tiger
Force (ATTF) and National Liberation Front of Tripura -- had
surrendered to different security forces.
