Bangladeshi incursions continue, BSF says can’t help it

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 19, 2009

Dawki (Meghalaya) Sept 18 (PTI) Bangladeshi miscreants, allegedly backed by Bangladesh Rifles, entered Indian territory twice this week along the international border in Meghalaya.

Over 50 Bangladeshi miscreants in boats entered India to pilfer stones near Bholaganj last Saturday, according to a BSF report. The miscreants pelted stones at a BSF patrol party which challenged them. Two jawans were injured in the incident, a BSF personnel said.

BSF Inspector General (Assam and Meghalaya Frontier) Prithvi Raj told PTI today that the BSF fired some six rounds in the air to disperse them. He added the BSF had lodged a protest with the BDR over the incident.

In another instance yesterday, miscreants from the neighbouring country, backed by the BDR, entered India through the Wah Umngot river near Dawki. They pelted stones on the BSF while it chased them.
