    THE TEBDEU POLICE STATION WHICH WAS THRICE ATTACKED BY ARMED BANDITS SOME TWO MONTHS AGO HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY THE GURKHAS.

    HERE, THE POLICE ARE CHECKING THE IDENTIFICATION PAPERS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO SLIPPED INTO TEBEDU FROM ACROSS THE INDONESIAN BORDER.

    THEY WERE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND AFTER QUESTIONING THEM AT THE POLICE STATION, THEY WERE ESCORTED BY ARMED POLICE BACK TO THE BORDER AND RELEASED.
