BGB takes steps to stop border killing in Sylhet
BSS, Sylhet :
Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has taken some coordinated steps, including launching an awareness campaign and creating employments for the frontier people, to stop killing and trespassing in the Sylhet frontier areas.
Along with public awareness programmes and patrolling, the BGB has strengthened the following measures to stop the trespassing, said a BGB press release here yesterday.
The steps are:
A) Undertaking massive public awareness programmes involving all concerned, including local administrations, police and public representatives.
B) Sending protest letters to Indian Border Security Force (BSF) condemning the killing of Bangladeshi nationals in the border and undertaking necessary measures and asking the BSF for bringing under trial the Khasia citizens responsible for killings.
