    Background: The Border Security Force has strengthen its deployment of border guards in the unmanne??? area of India-bangladesh borders so that the Non-Bengali Moslems now stranded in Bangladesh can not enter in to Indian territory from any point.These Non-Bengali Moslems declared on August 14 that after the Idd Festival they will again start trying to enter in to India on their way to Pakistan.But their all efforts were unsuccessful as the Bangladesh Rifles -men protected then from crossing over Indian territory.

    Lime all other borders along India bangladesh the areas in Hilli in West Dinajpur(bangladesh side is also called Hilly in Dinajpur District)were kept on strong vigilance by the Border Security Force men.

    As a result of round the clock vigilance by the Border Security Force men a record number of smuggler caught and arrested at the border area. In Bangladesh there is shortage of many items particularly Sugar, salt Mustard oil,electrical goods etc etc and a good quantity of materials are smuggled from various points of un-manned border areas.

    The broad gauge railway line has gone through Hilly town.The railway line belongs to Bangladesh and Bangladesh has regular train service through this line.This rail line connects the places where the non-Bengali Moslems are now staying and taking in to consideration that the non-Bengali Moslems may avail the train and drop-down come where from where they can go to Bihar and get lost in the vast population of India, the Border Security Force has taken special care to deploy armed soldiers by the side of the rail track.

    The Official check-post of Indian and Bangladesh is virtually sealed. Saidpur the main place of concentration of Non-Bengali Moslems, is very near from Hilly by train,and from Hilly there are connecting roads in Indian territory to go to Bihar.There is an another vital point that is Mekhligung in Coochb???har district of India.
