Talks between the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) and the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) regarding a recent spate of border killings ended on Tuesday.
The BSF proposed that the Indo-Bangladesh border be managed jointly in line with the current practice between many European nations. This will help curb border crime, argued the Indians at the conference with their Bangladeshi counterparts in Dhaka.
BSF Chief ML Kumawat also asserted that the majority of the 64 instances where unarmed Bangladeshis were killed near the border occurred at night when border crossing is illegal.
India is also working on installing flood lights along the border to enhance security.
