MizoramBurma border sealed to prevent terrorists' entrance

Chittagong, 2nd November 02:  The Bangladesh Army has been kept on red alert along the Mizoram border of north eastern India and the Myamar border along the country’s south-eastern hilly areas to check terrorists crossing out of the country, according to the local press.

To bolster the nationwide anti-terrorist drive that has stepped into the third week, the Bangladeshi government on reports of terrorists taking shelter in the remote areas of the south-eastern district of Bandarban Hill Tracts by various intelligence agencies has taken up the measures, reported a Chittagong vernacular daily. 

Strange faces frequenting the remote hills on the face of the joint police – army operation dubbed as ‘Clean Heart’ has prompted the law enforcing agencies to take up the extra cautionary measures.  Besides the people of the hills mostly constituted of Buddhist tribal have been panic-stricken for the movement of crime gang godfathers, said the Independent.

It is alleged in a number of dailies that, most of the tribal people are reluctant to open mouth about the existence of outside terrorists.  A tribal leader in the area said, “Terrorists or no terrorists, tribal population here have always been looked with suspicious eyes.”

As for now there is a lull prevailing in the hills before the impending storm of what the government has dubbed as Police-Army Anti-terrorist Joint Drive.  #
