The BSF seized cattle and contraband items worth over Rs. 3.2 crore IB of Bangladesh

Shillong, Feb 24: During the last one week, Border Security Force (BSF) seized 835 cattle, 26,500 kg onion and apprehended drug smugglers along with huge quantity of  Yaba tablets and Ganja, the total seizure was worth over Rs.3.2 crore along the international border with Meghalaya.

These items were to be smuggled to Bangladesh. During the period the Sentinel of border also apprehended 33 miscreants involved in Trans border crimes.

With increase in cattle smuggling, especially in East Khasi Hills and Jaintia Hills, the BSF has intensified its vigil along the International border to curb the menace. The trucks loaded with cattle are transported undetected up to the International Border with Meghalaya from different states of India.

It is a matter of great concern that numbers of truck loaded with cattle’s are transported from neighboring state Assam on daily basis which is ultimately reaching the border for smuggling to Bangladesh.

Cattle smuggling is the root cause of all other trans border crimes but despite continuous effort of  BSF to prevent the illegal cattle trade, it is a big challenge to completely halt the cattle smuggling from India into Bangladesh.
