BSF thwarts another sugar smuggling attempt in Bangladesh

Tura: Border Security Force (BSF) in coordination with the Meghalaya Police successfully thwarted an attempt to smuggle sugar into Bangladesh, resulting in the confiscation of over 70,000 kg of the essential commodity and the apprehension of three Indian nationals.

The operation unfolded on Tuesday near Gasuapara in South Garo Hills, where a joint team comprising police and the 181st Battalion BSF intercepted three vehicles.

Acting on specific intelligence, BSF troops, in coordination with Meghalaya police, devised a special operation and established a Mobile Check Post (MCP) near Gasuapara. It was during this operation that the vehicles, laden with more than 70,000 kg of sugar, were intercepted.

Upon interrogation, the drivers of the vehicles failed to furnish valid documents about the sugar consignment.

Subsequently, the illicit cargo was promptly seized and, along with the arrested individuals, handed over to the Gasuapara police station for further legal proceedings.

It’s noteworthy that in the initial quarter of the current year, vigilant BSF personnel confiscated approximately 1188 tons of sugar, which was destined for smuggling across the international border into Bangladesh via Meghalaya.
