Ranging from issues like cattle smuggling and illegal migration, the Indian side will raise six other vital issues with BGB in the four day-long conference.
During this conference, 10-member delegation of India headed by BSF director general (DG) Rajni Kant Mishra along with senior officials of the ministry of external affairs and other law enforcement agencies will meet 24 members of BGB headed by Gen Md Shafeenul Islam, director general, BGB.
Official sources said issues like trans-border crimes, smuggling of FICN & gold, narcotics and psychotropic substances, activities of Indian insurgent groups based in Bangladesh, prevention of illegal migration and human trafficking.
Efforts for effective implementation of Coordinated Border Management Plan (CBMP), confidence building measures, extension of crime free zone in AOR of Guwahati and Tripura Frontier and issues related to Border Infrastructure are the priority agenda of the Indian side.
