Agartala, Nov 24 (ANI): To tighten security along the Indo-Bangla border, the Border Security Force would set up nine more Border Outposts (BOPs).

The locations of 17 BOPs would also be changed along the 856 km long border in Tripura to prevent insurgents from sneaking into the Indian Territory.

Talking to reporters here, Director General of BSF Raman Srivastava said, "We are looking for new lands near International border for setting up of 26 BOPs so that insurgents cannot sneak into Indian Territory."

Srivastava who arrived here on Monday held a series of meetings with top BSF officials of the state.

The visit of Srivastava is significant in view of the Bangladeshi security forces' mounting pressure on the Indian terrorists taking shelter and training in that country. (ANI)
