BGB, BSF to jointly tackle trans-border crimes

BSF DG KK Sharma headed the 19-member Indian delegation who attended the five-day conference held at BGB headquarters in Dhaka. BSF DG Sharma said if the BSF receives any information on militancy, it will take prompt action. “Previously, the BGB and BSF had decided to jointly investigate major incidents or deaths near the Indo-Bangla border. This year they have agreed it is a matter best left to local police as neither BGB nor BSF have the legal authority to make such investigations,” clarified the BGB DG. BGB DG Hossain thanked the Indian government for approving the use of Indian border roads as this will make it easier to reach the remote areas of Chittagong Hill Tracts where new BGB border outposts are being constructed.

But neglecting Bangla, their mother language, is not unacceptable.”Foreign nationals living in Bangladesh were equally enthusiastic in showing their respect. We salute the language martyrs,” said Thomas, a Nigerian who is a student of a private university in Dhaka.
