Seven BSF personnel were killed and four other personnel injured when a vehicle they used for patrolling fell into a gorge near Mizoram-Bangladesh border Tuipuibari village on Tuesday, the police said.
Five BSF personnel were suspended Wednesday evening after a video footage showed the guards as thrashing a Bangladeshi cattle smuggler at Raninagar outpost near Indo-Bangla border in Murshidabad district.
Installation of direct satellite
phone terminals and televisions at Forward Defence Locations
across the country are among the steps taken by the BSF to
boost morale of its jawans and improve operational efficiency.
Two BSF jawans guarding the
ongoing border fencing work were killed in an ambush by
suspected National Liberation Front of Tripura insurgents at
Ratiacherra, a remote tribal hamlet in Dhalai district
