New Delhi: The border coordination conference between the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) would commence in New Delhi from Monday.
According to the BSF, the 19-member -Bangladesh delegation is led by the BDR chief Major General Md Mainul Islam, while the Indian delegation is headed by the BSF Director General Raman Srivastava.
The conference is likely to discuss the developments related to the Joint Border Management Plan and issues related to maintenance of boundary pillars along Indo-Bangladesh border.
The conference is also likely to discuss measures to be adopted to develop force-to-force relation.
The nearly 4,096 kilometres long India-Bangladesh border is one of the most difficult to patrol owing to reasons of topography, riverine patches, dense forested hills, agricultural lands and human settlements.
The porous nature of the border has led to numerous transborder problems including infiltration, smuggling, of arms and drugs, contraband goods, illegal movement of persons, and crimes such as kidnapping for ransom, cattle lifting, extortion etc.
The bilateral mechanism to coordinate between forces of both the side would help to counter such problems. (ANI)
