SHILLONG, March 4: In joint operations with Meghalaya Police, the BSF seized more than 33,000 kg of sugar in the last 24 hours along the Indo-Bangla border in South Garo Hills. The sugar was intended for smuggling into Bangladesh.
Acting on inputs, troops of 200th Battalion BSF, in collaboration with Meghalaya Police, launched a joint operation, which led to the seizure of a large cache of sugar, which had been stockpiled in an abandoned house near the Rongra bordering area.
In another operation, a mobile check post party of the border force intercepted a truck near Baghmara. The truck was suspected of carrying a large quantity of sugar meant for smuggling into Bangladesh. Upon being intercepted, the driver and co-driver fled the scene taking advantage of the cover of darkness. The seized goods have been handed over to concerned police outpost for further action.
