On another front, alert and vigilant troops of 45 BN BSF successfully seized a significant haul of miscellaneous items, including sarees and sanitary pads, worth Rs. 5.33 Lac from an abandoned house in Indian village Tokaraipara under PS Mankachar. In the same spirit, troops of 45 BN BSF seized 9 cattle worth Rs. 97 thousand during the night intervening 13-14 Feb 2024 from the riverine area of the Brahmputra river in Boreralga char.


It is a significant achievement by the alert and vigilant troops of 45 BN and 49 BN BSF, given the challenging task of controlling cattle smuggling in the river channel of the Brahmaputra, where the whole area is riverine and unfenced, covered by high growth of wild elephant grass. Cattle smugglers are desperate to exploit these conditions, which favor them for cattle smuggling to some extent.

However, the BSF troops deployed on char lands remain equally alert and vigilant 24×7 to thwart any ill attempts and nefarious designs of the cattle smugglers and anti-national elements.
