By TC News Desk

Agartala, 18th May 2024:   Concerns over increased infiltration in the state have intensified as people continue to be smuggled across the border from Bangladesh. The efficacy of the police administration and border guards has come under scrutiny, with critics labeling them as inept. Instances have emerged where police, without thorough investigation, have dismissed captured smugglers and Bangladeshi nationals as mere laborers en route to other states.

In a significant development, the railway police apprehended four Bangladeshi nationals and an Indian smuggler at Agartala railway station on Friday evening. Tapas Das, the Officer-in-Charge of Agartala Government Railway Police Station, provided details of the arrest.

The incident took place as routine checks were being conducted on a train scheduled to depart Agartala for Secunderabad on Friday night. During these inspections, five individuals were detained on suspicion of illegal entry. Upon interrogation, it was revealed that four of the detained were Bangladeshi nationals, while one was an Indian facilitator. The Bangladeshi citizens had entered the state unlawfully and were planning to travel to Chennai.

Following the arrests, the individuals were presented before the court on Saturday. This incident underscores the ongoing challenges of border security and the need for rigorous checks to prevent illegal infiltration.
