Agartala, August 6 (UNI) Border Security Force (BSF) has installed sophisticated gadgets including Thermal Night Vision Device (TNVD) and Telescopic Guns to stop infiltration along 856 km area of Tripura-Bangladesh border.
BSF officials here today said that it had already enhanced the security deployment on the borders in Tripura, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Assam following the instruction from the Ministry of Home Affairs, after the reports of growing influence of Bangladeshi fundamentalist groups started pouring in.
Three frontiers of North East- Tripura-Cachar-Mizoram, Assam- Meghalaya-Manipur and Nagaland have become vulnerable following the movement of the members of HUJI and Jamat-e-Mujah-e-deen Bangladesh, said a senior official of BSF in Tripura Frontier, adding the arrest of Sagam Ali, a suspected ISI agent and Mamun Mia, a hardcore HUJI activist from Agartala was a clear indication that fundamentalist groups had been using the border as safe corridor.
After the recent serial blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad, and intelligence reports, the ministry of Home Affairs had asked BSF to strengthen the security on Indo-Bangla border to intercept terrorists before entering into Tripura.
With the new dimension of fundamentalist activities in the neighbouring country, the troops and Commanders have been asked to maintain strict vigil along the border, said DIG (BSF) A K Singh adding TNVD is so powerful that it can take image of intruder from one km during the night.
