Bangladesh violence: BSF steps up patrolling along the border
Agartala:  Border Security Force has intensified its patrolling along the 856 km long Indo-Bangladesh border in Tripura to check infiltration into the Indian territory in view of the tense political situation there.

"We have strengthened our force in the border and are keeping a watch on the situation in the neighbouring country so that no one could infiltrate here. Not a single case of infiltration has taken place so far," DIG BS Rawat said.

A 60-hour long shutdown, sponsored by the combined opposition parties, is being observed in Bangladesh from today to press for formation of an independent care taker government before the national elections due early next year.

Sources in the state administration said they also alerted the BSF regarding the current situation in Bangladesh.
