Border Protection Grid to be set up in India-Bangladesh Frontier: Rajnath

'India committed to protecting borders with Bangladesh'

"We have chose to implement technological solution in this region which can also be termed as non-physical barrier", Singh said after conducting a meeting in Kolkata on developmental security issues in the India-Bangladesh border with the chief ministers of states bordering Bangladesh.

At a meeting of chief ministers and home ministers of West Bengal, Assam, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Tripura in Kolkata, Mr Singh said, a border protection grid on the lines of Unified Command set up in insurgency-hit states will soon come up in these states to check illegal infiltration.

According to him, the implementation and functioning of BPG would be supervised at the state level by a standing committee chaired by the respective state's Chief Cecretary.

This would be the fourth meeting of the chief ministers of states, which share global borders, called by the Indian home minister.

While appreciating the role of BSF for their unshakeable courage, skills, determination and dedication in securing this border, Shri Rajnath Singh reiterated that they should be more vigilant. The minister "stressed on the need to prevent entry, at worldwide borders, of illegal immigrants some of whom have links with extremist groups for furthering anti-national activities with ulterior motives and posing threat to internal security", said a home ministry press release issued after the meeting. "Of this, 684 km will be secured with fence and the related infrastructure, and the balance 406 km with the non-physical barriers".

Non-physical barrier would comprise technological intervention such as radar, day-night cameras and sensors.

"Though our relations with Bangladesh remain peaceful and good but security environment is very dynamic and because of fencing not being complete we have to be prepared for any eventuality", he said.

The meeting in Kolkata is also expected to chalk out plans on how to check cross-border smuggling of fake Indian currency notes, narcotics and other illegal activities, the official said.

Others present at the meeting were Kiren Rijiju, Union minister of state for home affairs, Sarbananda Sonowal, Chief Minister of Assam and Lal Thanwala, Chief Minister of Mizoram.
