On 26th August, 2022 at 1530 hrs, under South Bengal Frontier, troops of Border Out Post Banpur, 54 Battalion rescued 11 birds (Pigeons) from the clutches of smugglers on the basis of reliable information. When the jawans noticed a suspicious person coming towards fencing from Bangladesh side, the jawans on duty challenged him.
