Two Bangladeshi nationals, who had inadvertently crossed over into Indian territory and apprehended by the Border Security Force (BSF), were handed over to their counterparts, the Bangladeshi Border Guards (BGB) as a gesture of goodwill.
The handover of the two persons took place today.
The two Bangla nationals have been identified as Md Akhter Ujjaman (43), village- Mukhtir Kasandi, PS- Matlab, Distt- Chandpur and Md Amirul Islam, (18 yrs) village- Raipur, Dhobaura, Distt- Netrakona, Bangladesh.
The BSF said the two had come towards the border in South Garo Hills and inadvertently entered into Indian territory on November 20. They were apprehended immediately.
“BSF always adopts a humanitarian approach in cases of inadvertent crossing and minors. Both the Border guarding forces have developed an understanding on such subjects and these issues are amicably resolved, to strengthen the existing relationship and to enhance mutual trust between both the neighbouring countries,” said the Public Relation Officer of BSF, Meghalaya Frontier.
