Security to be tightened along Tripura border
Agartala: To ensure trouble-free elections to the Tripura tribal autonomous council and in view of the current political turmoil in neighbouring Bangladesh, security along the India-Bangladesh border and inter-state border with Assam and Mizoram would be further tightened, an official said here on Friday.
Polling for the 30-seat Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) will be held on May 3.
Inspector general of police (police control) Nepal Das told reporters hat the state government has asked the BSF authority to deploy additional troopers along the India-Bangladesh borders and further tighten the vigil in the frontiers.
He also said that said special security measures are being taken — especially in the areas where the border is unfenced. He said the Mobile Task Force (MTF) personnel have been deployed in several locations within Tripura to detect the presence of any illegal infiltration.
Tripura shares an 856-km border with Bangladesh and some parts of the border still remain unfenced. The northeastern state also shares a 53-km border with Assam and a 109-km border with Mizoram. (IANS)
