Pak militants using Bangladesh route for infiltration: BSF chiefApril 26th, 2009 - 2:32 pm ICT by ANI
By Pinaki DasAgartala, 26 Apr (ANI): Pakistan sponsored anti-India elements are now using the eastern border with Bangladesh and Nepal for infiltrating into the Indian territory, said Director General of the Border Security Force (BSF) M L Kumawat.”The western frontier is almost fully fenced and is better mended because the fencing work started much early, they (Pakistan intelligence sponsored militants) have to find some other ways to come into India,” said the BSF head during interaction with reporters here at the BSF Tripura Frontier headquarters.
“There is the Bangladesh route, Nepal route or some other areas of sea route. So they are out sourcing or providing help to other forces, which are inimical to India,” he added.
Commenting on relations with neighbouring countries, he assured that it has improved with Bangladesh after the recent change of regime there.”Bangladesh is a friendly country and our leadership at national level also has extended all help to Bangladesh. Even at border guarding forces level our relationship is very good,” said Kumawat.
“The very fact that DG BDR came here and he expressed gratitude proves that our relationship is all time good and I can say this will help both the countries in dealing with problems that both sides are facing,” the BSF DG said.
“As far as the present government (Bangladesh) is concerned they are fully with us in dealing with such elements which are anti-India,” Kumawat added.Kumawat further assured that Bangladesh has already started taking action against anti-India insurgent groups camped in its territory. “The ground reality is they (Bangladesh) at some places (alongside the border) they have taken good action against them and dismantled their camps” Kumawat informed.
He claimed that India would further tighten the vigil along the 4,095 km-long international border with Bangladesh by increasing border outposts (BOPs) from 1,411 to 1,882 and deploying more BSF troopers with modern gadgets and devices and flood lighting of the fencing.Kumawat, however, expressed regret over the non-commitment of Pakistan towards fight against terror. Such actions have boomeranged against Pakistan itself. (ANI)
