India to seal border with Bangladesh and Pakistan
International Desk:Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said India mulls to seal international borders with Bangladesh and Pakistan immediately.
Singh made the disclosure while speaking the passing out parade of the Border Security Force Assistant Commandants at the BSF Academy in Madhya Pradesh’s Tekanpur area.
Quoting the minister Times of India reports, “India is planning to seal the international boundaries with Pakistan and Bangladesh as soon as possible. This could be India’s major step against terrorism and the problem of refugees.”
The Indian home minister assured that the border with Pakistan would be sealed by 2018.
The decision has been taken in the wake of an increase in infiltration attempts, he said.
Lauding the BSF personnel, the home minister said that the force has altered the rules of involvement at international borders which have made it a known entity in the neighboring countries.
“The BSF has changed rules of engagement at international borders. Now, the BSF is a known entity even in neighboring countries,” different local media quoted Singh.
He also spoke about the planning for an useful grievances redressal mechanism in the forces which will be materialized soon.
