Bangaon, Apr 1 (UNI) Satellite telephones were being used by the miscreants in the Indo-Bangladesh bordering areas of North 24 Parganas despite activation of jammers and strict vigil, Border Security Force officials said.

Massive usage of satellite phones might have dangerous effect in future unless it was curbed, BSF soures today said.

The BSF sources said though they were yet to track such criminals using satellite phones for communication, security, already beefed up in the bordering area, has been further intensified.

The signals of such telephones were intercepted recently following activation of jammers to de-link telephone communication using Bangladesi SIM cards from Indian side of the international border.

Seizure of a Bangladeshi SIM card during the temple blast at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh in the recent past, forced the Union Communication Ministry to activate jammers, blocking the signals of the calndestine cell phone communication between India and Bangladesh.
