SHLLONG, Nov 22 - Border Security Force has provided documentary proof to its Bangladesh counterpart of Indian insurgent groups having camps in the neighbouring country, BSF officials said here.
A BSF delegation led by Inspector General Meghalaya Frontier, Sudesh Kumar provided the documentary proof to Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) in a bilateral meeting held in Sylhet on November 18.
The BSF cited that camps belonging to Garo National Liberation Army, United Liberation Front of Asom, Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council, National Democratic Front of Bodoland and National Liberation Front of Tripura have camps in Bangladesh, BSF officials said.
Besides insurgency, the BSF also raised the issue of fake Indian currency notes being printed in Bangladesh and being pushed into India by Bangladeshi nationals.
�Commission of trans-border crimes like smuggling of fake Indian currency notes, forest produce and cattle theft, dacoities in Indian territory committed by Bangladeshi nationals and criminals inside Indian territory were also discussed during the meeting,� the officials added.
The BSF also discussed with its counterpart the construction of single row fence within 150 yards from the International Border with the BGB officials for obtaining clearance from Bangladesh Government for the construction.
The BGB raised concerns about firing and subsequent killing and injuring of unarmed Bangladeshi nationals by Indian miscreants and smuggling of various types of drugs and narcotics including Phensedyl and liquor.
The BSF, however, refuted the allegations of killing of Bangladeshi nationals by Indian villagers. BSF urged BGB authorities to discourage Bangladeshi nationals from crossing the international boundary.
