New Delhi, Aug 19 (ANI): The five-day biannual Director General- level talks between BSF and Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) beginning in Dhaka on Wednesday.
The Indian side will be led by BSF chief A K Mitra, who is likely to press for strong action from Bangladesh against unprovoked firing, women and child trafficking, unabated infiltration from across the border and smuggling of narcotics and cattle.
The activities of Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islamia and Northeast militants activities will figure in our dialogue with BDR, a senior BSF official said.
There have been reports of the involvement of Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) in the serial blasts in Hyderabad, Jaipur and Ajmer.
The delegation is also likely to ask Dhaka to probe the link between HuJI and other anti-India terrorists with Pakistan’’s Inter Service Intelligence.
BSF had already handed over a list of 141 camps of militant groups, including front ranking ULFA, located in Bangladesh to the BDR and sought its help to dismantle them. (ANI)
