>117 terror camps on Bangladesh soil: Hindustan Times

>AT least 117 insurgent camps in Bangladesh are being used to train terrorists against India, according to a list given by the Border Security Force (BSF) to their Bangladesh counterparts, reports Hindustan Times (Read full report)
“During the Director General (DG)-level meeting of border security forces of both sides organized in Delhi on April 9-11, 2008, a list of 117 hideouts was given to the Bangladesh side,” Minister of State for Home Affairs Radhika V Selvi told Parliament in a written reply.
“However, information about the specific action taken by the Bangladesh authorities is not available,” Selvi added.
Last year, the Indian government had given a list of 141 hideouts of members of Indian Insurgent Groups (IIGs) in Bangladesh territory during the DG-level meeting held in Dhaka Oct 24-27.
The Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) has also approved floodlighting of 2,840 km along the Indo-Bangladesh border.
“The project will cost Rs. 1327.77 crore (Rs.13.28 billion) and is likely to be completed within five years, i.e. by 2011-12,” Selvi added.
The fencing along the Indo-Bangladesh border has helped bring down the number of people crossing over illegally. In 2007, a total of 4,206 infiltrators were arrested, compared to 5,130 a year earlier.
The central government has also decided to realign the electrified security fencing along the Pakistan border to bring more than 4,000 acres of fertile farmland back to Indian cultivators.
