India fences half of its border with Bangladesh
India has finished fencing half of its porous border with Bangladesh and plans to seal off the rest by 2019 to curb infiltration and smuggling of cattle and fake Indian currency notes, reports The Hindu. Bangladesh and India share a 4,096km border. Among Indian states, West Bengal shares a 2,216.7km border with Bangladesh, 263km with Assam, 443km with Meghalaya, 856km with Tripura, and 318km with Mizoram. “We have surveyed every inch of the land to be fenced. We have identified plots to be acquired. We have sent a proposal to the government,” RP Singh, additional director-general of the Border Security Force, East, was quoted as telling the newspaper. Land acquisition is a major challenge for completing the work by the 2019 deadline, The Hindu noted. RP Singh said fences would be put up the moment they get final approval for land acquisition. “Where fence is not possible, we are going in for technological solutions such as cameras and lasers,” Singh said.
