Smugglers are adopting new modus operandi everyday to get success in their smuggling attempt. But the vigilant troops of the Border Security Force are always one step ahead of the smugglers. In one such incident, on 07 September 2022, the troops of Border Out Post Mama Bhagina, 68 Battalion under South Bengal Frontier on the basis of reliable information, launched a special search operation. In which 19 Gold biscuits being smuggled by hiding in the spray machine were recovered. These gold biscuits were brought by a Bangladeshi smuggler who ran away towards Bangladesh on being challenged by BSF troops leaving behind the spray machine. The total weight of the seized gold biscuits is 2.216 Kg whose market value is approx Rs 1,14,02,503/-.
The seized gold biscuits have been handed over to the Customs Office Bagdah.
