AGARTALA, Feb 7 � The relay hunger strike launched by the displaced people due to erection of barbed wire fencing along 856-km-long Indo-Bangla border completed the sixth day today.
Subal Bhowmick, president of Simanta Bhumi Suraksha Committee, said, �The internally displaced people would continue their movement unless they are given written assurance by the govt that they will be properly rehabilitated.�
Tripura�s 856-km-long border with Bangladesh has been fenced along 675 km to check infiltration of illegal migrants and stop Indian insurgents from fleeing to Bangladesh.
