No Fresh Infiltration Of Rohingyas Into India: BSF

"We have alerted our troops and mobilised resources on the entire 4,096-km India-Bangladesh border. To commemorate their sacrifices, we are organising a half marathon in the city with three distance categories on October 29", R P Singh, Additional Director General of BSF's Eastern Command said at the curtain raiser of the event here. "There is no reason to believe only seven Rohingyas entered Bengal and tried to cross the global border", an officer said. "Since then, there have been no incidents", Singh said.

A sector commander level meeting of BSF and Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) here today resolved to share actionable intelligence inputs to curb trans-border crimes. "So, whether they are Rohingyas or Bangladeshis, if they do not have a valid passport, it does not make any difference", he added. The western border of Tripura has recently became more hostile due to repeated incidences of interception of smuggling of gold from Bangladesh to Kolkata, contraband goods to Bangladesh via Agartala and entry of illegal migrants from African sub-continent and Rohingyas of Myanmar. This year, the figure is seven and all of that happened before we redeployed our forces and plugged gaps. After the recent cases of the Rohingyas moving to Bangladesh, the BSF has not apprehended anybody. "In 2013, we apprehended almost 96 Rohingyas".
