BSF discovers trans-border tunnel in Meghalaya
India's Border Security Force (BSF) has discovered a tunnel under the India-Bangladesh border in the militancy-prone South West Garo Hills district of Meghalaya. BSF officials said the tunnel was dug to a depth of 20 to 25 feet and had been detected in Gujangpara area on Wednesday, reports Business Standard. "We cannot rule out anything," BSF Inspector General PK Dubey told IANS. "We don't know whether the tunnel was dug for militants criss-crossing the international border or if it was meant for smuggling of cattle to Bangladesh". Dubey, who is the Meghalaya border in-charge, said further inspections would be carried out by a team of BSF officials. "After analysing the terrain, it appears the miscreants needed to dig 200 metres further to reach the other end of the India-Bangladesh border fence," he said. The in-charge also discussed the area’s growing sensitivity due to the increased number of cattle being smuggled to Bangladesh. "There have been a large number of seizures of cattle by the BSF troopers in this particular area. The border guards have plugged all the gaps (in the fence) by placing iron grills and wire meshes," he added.
