BSF troops under South Bengal Frontier foiling the plans of smugglers, seized 544 bottles of Phensedyl from their responsibility areas along the Indo-Bangladesh Border. The estimated value of the seized Phensedyl bottles is Rs.1,11,688/-.

Expressing satisfaction over the success of the jawans, the spokesperson of the South Bengal Frontier appreciated them a lot. He stated that this is only a reflection of the vigilance displayed by the BSF jawans on duty. He urged the people not to adopt the route of smuggling under any circumstances. He also stated, in strong words, that BSF 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.
