AGARTALA, June 4 (PTI): Unrest in Bangladesh�s Khagracherri district

has led around 90 Bangladeshi families to cross the unfenced Indo-Bangla

border and take shelter at Tuichakma in Tripura's Dhalai district,

official sources said today.

District Magistrate, Dr Milind K Ramteke who was camping at Tuichakma

ADC village, today confirmed the influx of Bangladeshi nationals

in some border areas of the district.

"We are collecting information about the families, who have come

over from across the border," Ramteke said.

The BSF will organise a flag meeting at Mayang BOP this evening

where BGB�s wing commander of Naraicherra BOP will be present to

resolve the problem, he said.

"We are optimistic of sending all the Bangladeshi nationals back

to their homeland," he said.

The families, mostly Chakma and Tripuri ethnic tribes were residents

of Naraicheeri, Dakshin Baghaihaat, North Baghaihaat and Dewanpara

in Khagracherri district of Bangladesh.

Top police and BSF officials were camping at Tuichakma ADC village,

an unfenced border village of Ganadacherra subdivision.

Tension was running high at Khagracherri in Bangladesh�s Chittagong

Hill Tracts following skirmish between members of the United Democratic

Front and Bangladesh Border Guards which led the Bangla nationals

to take shelter on Indian soil.

Vigil was intensified along the unfenced Indo-Bangla especially

with CHT by the BSF.

Though 80 per cent of the Indo-Bangla border was fenced, some stretches

on the state�s eastern border including Gandacherra, Korbok and Longthrai

Valley still remained unfenced.
