BGB, BSF to step up vigilance along border ahead of polls

Bangladesh and India have agreed to strengthen vigilance along the common border to halt cross border movement of materials that might be used to stage any activities of sabotage during or ahead of the forthcoming 12th national election in Bangladesh.

While speaking to reporters at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday, Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen referred to recent seizure of a few consignments of bomb-making materials in this regard.

During his meeting with Indian Foreign Secretary Vinay Mohan Kwatra at Hyderabad House in New Delhi on Friday, the two countries held "comprehensive discussions" on a wide range of issues covering border and security, trade, commerce and connectivity, cooperation in water, power and energy sectors, people to people ties and development cooperation.
