BSF finds riverine Bangla border challenging

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, April 24 � Though the situation along the Indo-Bangla border has improved a lot, riverine vigil along the Indo-Bangla border remains a challenge for the Border Security Force (BSF), said Inspector General of BSF PK Wahal while talking to mediapersons on Monday evening.

Wahal said that the BSF is committed to thwart any anti-national activities along the border and an upgraded mechanism will certainly add teeth to its endeavour.

Wahal, however, was of the view that flood lighting of the border, once it is complete, will also go a long way in intensifying the vigil.

�The intensity of the vigil along the border is assessed from time to time and necessary measures are being taken,� said Wahal, who took over as the IGP, Assam Frontier. The Assam Frontier which was earlier part of Assam-Meghalaya frontier, after bifurcation, will now work specifically along the Indo-Bangla border in Dhubri and Coach Bihar, besides Phalakata in West Bengal.

Wahal further said that the issues along the border need to be dealt with properly and no stone will remain unturned to safeguard the country�s interest.

He also said that smuggling of fake currencies and cattle from either side of the border remains a concern and the security forces are keeping a close eye on such activities.

Another senior BSF official divulged that the Ministry of Home Affairs has assured all help to put in place a fool-proof mechanism along the international border.
