Dhaka, July 4: As the administration in Dhaka continues cracking down on militants, security along the border with India has been tightened. In a firm directive to the Border Security Force, the Home Ministry has said that infiltrations of any kind must be prevented at any cost.
The Ministry for Home Affairs pointed out that there is every chance that militants may try and enter India in the wake of the crack down.
States such as Assam and West Bengal in particular are very vulnerable to infiltrations. India has witnessed infiltration along the border areas each time there is a crack down in Bangladesh.
The members of the Burdwan module too had sought refuge in West Bengal following a massive crack down by the Sheik Hasina government.
The Home Ministry has also directed the states of Assam and West Bengal to remain on high alert. Officials in the Ministry for Home Affairs tell OneIndia that there is a general alert that has been issued. Our concern however are the infiltrations as we fear many from Bangladesh may try and seek refuge in India.
Further the Home Ministry has also pointed towards the distribution of pamphlets by pro-ISIS groups. The pamphlets which have messages in Bengali speaks about the establishment of a Bengal Caliphate.
