Agartala, Nov 22 (UNI) Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today asked the BSF to adopt pro-people strategy for an effective border management.

Mr Sarkar has also asked state Director General of Police (DGP) K T D Singh to talk to BSF in this regard.

Mr Sarkar took the step after three civilians, including two Bangladeshi nationals, were killed by the security forces in North Tripura recently.

The people in the border areas have also threated to go on a mass agitation against the alleged 'high-handedness' of Border force.

However, asking the BSF to keep strict vigil on the border, Mr Sarkar also urged them to detain the criminals before pressing the trigger.

Meanwhile, the security personnel have clarified that on November 20 a group of Bangladeshi miscreants were cutting teak trees in at Halambari in North Tripura.

When the security forces tried to stop illegal activity, the criminals attacked on the BSF with axe, saw and by throwing stones, which compelled the jawans to open fire.
