Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik
Sarkar has alleged that insurgent camps continued to remain
intact in neighbouring Bangladesh and needed to be demolished.

"Insurgent infrastructure continued to be intact in
Bangladesh and insurgents and their leaders having permanent
bases there have not been nabbed despite red corner notices
against them," Sarkar told the conference of Chief Ministers
on Internal Security in Delhi yesterday.

Strengthening of the Indo-Bangla border was necessary
because it encompassed the regional security of the entire
North-East, he said according to a copy of his speech
available here.

Flood lighting along the 856 km porous border and
construction of an additional 37 border outposts to reduce the
gap between two to 3 to 4 km and construction of more border
roads were needed to check infiltration by insurgents, he
said.
