The Border Security Force in Meghalaya once again foiled smugglers’ illicit plan by seizing huge number of cosmetic items meant to be smuggled to Bangladesh.
On 20th May 2021, acting on reliable tip off, the troops of 43 Bn BSF seized cosmetics worth more than rupees 31 lac while being carried towards International Border for smuggling purpose to Bangladesh. On being intercepted by BSF, miscreants ran away from the spot, taking the advantage of dark. Later on, the seized items were handed over to customs office Rongra, South Garo Hills, Meghalaya for further disposal.
BSF spokesperson told that BSF troops are watchful and active against any illegal activity through the International Border as the smugglers and other Anti-National elements are trying to take the advantage of COVID situation in implementing their nefarious designs.
