Bangladeshi, Indian Aide Arrested for Illegal Entry into Tripura

3 Bangladeshis, 1 Indian Aide Arrested

The Government Railway Police (GRP) in Agartala arrested three Bangladeshi women and an Indian aide for illegally entering Tripura. The arrests, made on May 23, were based on confidential intelligence and suspicious behaviour at the Agartala railway station.

Officials revealed that the Bangladeshi women were identified as Farida Begum, Laila Akhtar, and Rina Khatun, while the Indian aide was identified as Raju Singh. According to the police, the women and Singh were apprehended while attempting to board a train bound for Guwahati. The authorities acted swiftly upon receiving the intelligence and detained the suspects for questioning.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the women had crossed the border into India through an unauthorized route. Their plan was to travel to various parts of the country with the help of Singh, who is believed to be part of a larger human trafficking network. The authorities suspect that the group had intended to move further into the Indian mainland, possibly to avoid detection.

Superintendent of Police (Railways) Ajay Kumar stated, “The arrest of these individuals is a significant breakthrough in our efforts to curb illegal immigration and human trafficking. We are investigating their network and are determined to bring all involved to justice.”

The suspects have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Foreigners Act. The women have been placed in judicial custody, while Singh is being interrogated to gather more information about the network involved in facilitating illegal entry into India.

Authorities are also working closely with the Border Security Force (BSF) to strengthen surveillance along the India-Bangladesh border in Tripura. Increased patrols and the use of advanced monitoring equipment are part of the measures being taken to prevent further incidents of illegal crossings.

The incident highlights the ongoing challenges faced by security forces in managing the porous borders between India and Bangladesh. The GRP and BSF continue to collaborate to enhance border security and prevent illegal activities that pose a threat to national security.

The Tripura government has reiterated its commitment to addressing issues of illegal immigration and human trafficking. The state administration has called for increased vigilance and cooperation among various security agencies to ensure the safety and security of its borders.
