In another operation Wednesday morning, troopers of the same battalion at the Bamnabad border outpost caught a man carrying 1,510 Bottles of Phensedyl.

Phensedyl is misused as a cheap intoxicant.

The BSF troops also seized arms and ammunition from the Border in Malda district Wednesday afternoon.

The release said that troops of 125 Battalion BSF deployed at border outpost Sasani in Malda observed that some miscreants were trying to throw goods over the international boundary fence.

"On being challenged by the troops, the miscreants fled. During a search, the BSF men recovered two country made pistols, four pistol magazines and 13 rounds of 7.65 mm ammunition from the spot," the release said.
