Bangladesh Rifles hands over India list of 1,591 criminalsNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:07 am ICT by admin
The BSF has also gave a list of 141 camps of Indian insurgents in Bangladesh territory, a claim the BDR officials dubbed unfounded.
The border forces of the two neighbouring countries concluded the five-day conference on Monday agreeing to show utmost restraint and not to open fire on trespassers in daytime.
“It’s not right to open fire and kill anyone if he crosses the border. Rather he can be arrested and brought under due legal process,” BDR Chief Major General Shakil Ahmed told reporters at BDR Headquarters.
Echoing him, BSF DG Ashish Kumar Mitra said, “On my return, I will issue very clear instructions in this regard.”
The conference, the second and last this year, also reached a consensus about exchanging information and handing over criminals hiding in each other’s country.
Major General Ahmed reiterated Bangladesh’s commitment to implement the 1974 Mujib-Indira border agreement and the 1975 Bangladesh-India border guidelines for resolving problems regarding construction of defence infrastructures, barbed-wire fences and other installations.
The conference decided that the BSF chief would request New Delhi for effective steps to demarcate the 6.5-km common boundary, which includes 2 km in Muhurir Char, 1.5 km in Doikhata and 3 km in Lathitila.
Mitra also proposed frequent meetings at sector commander-level, preferably once a month, to consolidate mutual trust.
He asked the Bangladesh authorities to send schoolchildren on a visit to India. India would also send schoolchildren to visit Bangladesh for the betterment of relation, he added. (ANI)
