Agartala, Feb 29 (UNI) The international terrorist organisations have been using the Indo-Bangla border as a corridor for entering into the Indian Territory, Additional Director General of BSF (East) U K Bansal said here today.

Talking to mediapersons, he said the anti-Indian forces had been using Bangladesh to enter into this side as Western and Southern border of the country were well guarded, besides the Indo-Nepal and Kashmir border.

He pointed out that HuJi and other fundamentalist elements had spread their net in the bordering states of India, including Northeast and West Bengal and as a result, the BSF was procuring most modern electronic gadgets like floodlight, thermal and satellite imageries, different radars and night vision devices.

Mr Bansal was looking after five frontiers of eastern Indian states, which shared 4100 km border with Bangladesh. He claimed that the BSF had been doing their best to maintain peace on the borders and a number of initiatives were taken for the purpose.

''The cross-border crime and movements of anti-Indian forces through the Indo-Bangla border have reduced substantially while the socio-economic development projects of the bordering communities are initiated as part of the border management programme,'' Mr Bansal said, adding the fencing work of about 641 km of 856 km border had already been completed in Tripura.
