By TC News Desk

Agartala, 24th May 2024:   The Government Railway Police (GRP) arrested three Bangladeshi women and a youth at Agartala railway station for illegal trespassing, according to Officer-in-Charge Tapas Das. The individuals were found without valid documents, raising significant security concerns.

The Agartala railway station, known for being a transit point for various illegal activities including the smuggling of intoxicants like ganja, is also used by Bangladeshi citizens attempting to cross into foreign countries. This incident underscores the vulnerabilities in the state’s security apparatus.

Based on a tip-off regarding the presence of Bangladeshi citizens planning to use the station for illegal travel, plainclothes police officers were deployed at the site. Their suspicions were aroused by the behavior of three women and a man loitering in the area. Upon questioning, the group provided inconsistent answers about their destination, leading to their arrest.

During interrogation, the detainees identified as Sukhlal Debnath, Rozina Begum, Ruma Akhtar, and Kakali Begum admitted to being Bangladeshi nationals without proper documentation. A case has been registered at the Agartala GRP police station.

The incident has intensified scrutiny on border security and the effectiveness of surveillance measures by the Border Security Force (BSF), raising public concern over the ease with which individuals can infiltrate the border.
