The Border Security Force (BSF) has sounded a high alert along the Indo-Bangladesh border after the Bangladesh Border Guards (BBG) busted ULFA's hideouts.
"We have alerted our troops along the Indo-Bangladesh border, especially along Meghalaya. The troops have been asked to keep a strict vigil and remain on high alert for any possible attempts of intrusion and other suspect activities," Inspector General of BSF (Assam-Meghalaya frontier) R C Saxena told UNI today.
"The situation on the border is perfectly calm at present," he added.
Bangladesh's security forces on Saturday seized a huge cache of ammunition, some CDs, 19 (cell phone) SIM cards, five walkie-talkies, Indian currency notes and incriminating documents of the ULFA from Bakagora village in Sherpur district bordering Meghalaya.
On December 18, the Bangladesh forces also seized 13,680 rounds of AK-47 ammunition.
"This is a good step and we appreciate the steps taken by Bangladesh authorities which is in the interest of peace and harmony in the region," Mr Saxena said.
