BSF DG KK Sharma yesterday told the reporters that the Border Security Force (BSF) which guards the 4100 km long India-Bangladesh border has successfully managed to block the illegal migration of Rohingya Muslims from Bangladesh with the help of technology and increased vigilance. He said about eight to ten lakh Rohingyas have fled Myanmar and entered Bangladesh and the BSF has successfully managed to stop their infiltration.

He further added that the Indian government has been providing necessary support to the Bangladesh government while international pressure is being put on Myanmar government to take back the Rohingya immigrants. Speaking about the steps taken by the BSF to contain the influx of illegal immigrants, he said that the infiltration from Bangladesh is a trickle movement and hence they have increased patrolling by boats in river areas, started using flood lights to detect movements as well as put up barbed wires to deter movement on the land. He said that while Rohingyas immigrants tried to infiltrate, the BSF has successfully managed to block them.

Earlier last week, Sharma had said that the West Bengal government has shown a friendly stand towards the illegal Rohingya migrants and even shown willingness to accept them.

Earlier we had reported how Rohingya terrorists have been crossing border pretending to be refugees. The central government, too, had issued letters to state governments urging them to review the matter of illegal immigrants and prevent their entry in India. The Home Ministry, too, has been taking measures to track the illegal Rohingya immigrants and said that they will not be allowed to stay in India.
