Patch of barbed wire fencing in Tripura still unfenced

The area remaining unfenced was resulting in a small group of insurgents taking advantage of the porous border.

Agartala: Barbed wire fencing and flood
lighting on 180 km of Tripura`s border with Bangladesh was yet
to be completed as work has stopped after the Union Ministry
of Home payment delayed payment, Chief Secretary SK Panda
said.

The fencing and flood lighting work was under direct
supervision of the central government with the Border Security
Force being the nodal agency and the state government only
providing logistic support, Panda said.

The area remaining unfenced was resulting in a small
group of insurgents taking advantage of the porous border, he
said.

The chief secretary said, the work entrusted to
central government undertakings like NBCC and NPCC was not
satisfactory and had stopped because of delayed payment by the
MHA.
