Thwarting the plans of smugglers, BSF troops under South Bengal Frontier seized 373 bottles of Phensedyl and 02 smugglers from their area of ​​responsibility in Indo-Bangladesh International Border area. The estimated value of the seized Phensedyl bottles is Rs.75,182/-. Smugglers were trying to take these contraband items from India to Bangladesh.

The first incident took place on 22 March 2023 at 2315 hrs, in the area of ​​BSF’s Border Out Post Sabdalpur, 70 Battalion. Acting on intelligence, jawans performing CCTV camera duty, observed 02 smugglers moving towards the international border with gunny bags. The jawans immediately laid an ambush in their area of ​​responsibility. The troops challenged them, as soon as jawans got the opportunity and nabbed 02 smugglers on the spot. 298 bottles of Phensedyl were seized from the possession of the smugglers. The apprehended smugglers were identified as Mahibur Sheikh and Faizul Shaikh, District Malda.

The apprehended smugglers revealed that they had received Phensedyl from Ishab Sheikh and Irshad Sheikh, District Malda and were to further cross the BSF duty line and hand it over to Sohail Sheikh, District Chapinavganj, Bangladesh. But BSF jawans caught them on the way.

In another incident, jawans of Border Out Post Amudia, 112 Battalion seized 75 bottles of Phensedyl from their area of ​​responsibility.

The apprehended smugglers and the seized goods were handed over to the concerned agencies for further legal action.

He said in strong words that his jawans will not allow smuggling or any other type of crime to take place on the border and will not spare the persons involved in it.
