(District – North 24 Parganas)
On 25 July, 2022 at 2120 hrs, the troops of Border Out Post Angrail, 158 Battalion apprehended three Bangladeshi smugglers red handed with 790 bottles of Phensedyl. The estimated value of the seized Phensedyl is Rs 1,62,695/-. This consignment of Phensedyl was kept hidden by Bangladeshi smugglers.
Smugglers were trying to smuggle all these Phensedyl bottles from India to Bangladesh as soon as they got a chance. During interrogation, it has been revealed that the three smugglers work as carriers and once a consignment crosses the IB, they get Rs 300 per day. The apprehended smugglers have been handed over to the Police Station Bangaon for further legal action along with the seized Phensedyl. In the statement issued by the BSF, it has been made clear that those who have wrong intentions on the border will not be spared.
