    Kolkata: Border Guard Bangladesh has said it has "zero tolerance" towards any anti-India activity including those by insurgents and was taking "stern" steps in this direction.

    However, the force refuted media reports about anti-India fidayeen camps operating from Bangladeshi territory.

    "I have never heard of such camps or any such knowledge of them," BGB (ADG) Brigadier General Md Latiful Haider told PTI in an interview here.

    "We are taking stern action to curb anti-India activity, including insurgent activity, on our soil. Recently we seized a huge cache of arms in Sylhet bordering India. We have zero tolerance for such things," he said.

    Haider was referring to the BGB's seizure of a huge stockpile of illegal weapons, including around 200 anti-tank rocket shells, in a jungle bordering Tripura earlier this month, the single biggest arms recovery after the 2004
    Chittagong recovery.

    Asked if the arms were bound for India to fuel insurgent activity, Haider, who led a team of the BGB for border-level talks with the BSF, said it might be the case, but an investigation would reveal the truth.

    "It may be that the arms consignment was for insurgent groups, but right now an investigation is on. So let it be completed. We will never allow any anti-India activity to happen in Bangladesh," he said.

    Asked to identify the groups involved in the stockpile," Haider said, "There might be anti-India elements working behind it, but they might as well be working from within India. What happens is that when India intensifies its operation against them, they cross into Bangladesh and when Bangladesh intensifies operation against them, they move back to India".

    Haider, however, declined to comment if militant groups like HUJI or Pakistani intelligence services working against India were involved in it.

    Recently during DG level talks, the BSF handed to the BGB a list of 45 Indian insurgent groups operating within 5-15 km of the Bangladesh border in the Northeast.

    "We have given them a list of 45 camps of Indian insurgent groups operating inside the Bangladesh territory upto 5-15 km on the north-eastern side of the India-Bangladesh border, especially in the Chittagong hills," BSF ADG B D

    Sharma told PTI.

    Anti tank rockets?:eek:

    Can't be destined for India, because India's counter insurgency forces do not use tanks in the first place, so why would insurgents need anti tank weapons?

    This was an old cache and was obviously preserved by RAB under BAL govt's instructions for political use. The "discovery" was timed with the visit of Indian FM.
