Agartala: Security has been beefed up in
Tripura and an alert has been sounded along the 856 km long
Indo-Bangla international border in the state in view of the
raising day of the outlawed National Liberation Front of
Tripura (NLFT) tomorrow, police said Thursday.

"Every year, the NLFT observes March 12 as its raising day
and tries to launch subversive activities, so security has
been beefed up throughout the state and Border Security Force
was alerted to keep strong vigil along the border", D.I.G,
Police Control, Nepal Das said.

He said security cover was enhanced at vital installations
like Civil Secretariat, Rajbhavan and Tripura assembly and
regular checking on the vehicles entering into the towns from
outside was being carried out.

Patrolling of security forces in the remote and insurgency
prone areas was stepped up and police deployed near the
international border were also alerted so that the insurgents
from their base camps in neighbouring Bangladesh could not
sneak into the state.

Chief Minister Manik Sarkar recently stated that despite
improvement of India`s relation with Bangladesh, the camps of
two major insurgent outfits, NLFT and banned All Tripura Tiger
Force (ATTF), continued to remain in the neighbouring country.
