SHILLONG, May 8 - Three Indians who were jailed in Bangladesh after they were found straying in that country were brought back as part of the Coordinated Border Management Plan (CBMP) signed by the border guards of both countries.
Out of the three, two were jailed in Sunamganj jail and were received by BSF and police at the International Check Post at Dawki on Thursday, a BSF spokesperson said.
They could not be repatriated due to procedural delay for some time until the BSF took the initiative and mooted a case for their early repatriation to India, he said.
Another person from Meghalaya’s East Jaintia Hills district, who had inadvertently crossed the International boundary and was apprehended by the BGB, was handed over to BSF under the CBMP.
The border guards of both countries had signed the CBMP aimed at easing border management for both the forces guarding the Indo-Bangladesh border and to make life of border population peaceful. – PTI
