    Tension mounts in BGB's objection over zero line fencing in Tripura
    Agartala | Monday, Sep 5 2016 IST

    The zero line wire fencing in Kailashahar of North Tripura along Bangladesh border was suspended today for the 12th time following objection from Border Guards of the neighbouring country. The construction company has suspended the work following firing threat from Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB). However, BSF and BGB finally sat for commandant level flag meeting over the issue but could not resolve.Allegedly, BGB jawans had threatened NBCC construction workers to kill them unless they stop fencing work in the morning when they start digging at zero line. Initially, BGB jawans asked them to stop working and when argued they attempted to fire, alleged Mantu Shil, a villager."The jawans not only threatened firing, they warned to burn down the village too if zero line fencing continued," Mr Shil alleged, adding that the fencing work had been held up over a decade, as fencing in 150 yard inside India as per existing plan could fence out a major portion of the village and a huge establishment.

    The BSF officials, however, stated that BGB was informed about India's dissatisfaction over the act of their jawans and sought cooperation to complete the fencing along entire unfenced stretches as per the latest agreement of zero line fencing.Barbed wire fencing inside 150 yards of Zero line in 25 patched of Tripura has began with the agreement of India and Bangladesh last year to protect Indian establishment from fencing out.

    Considering permanent construction in the Indian side, the Tripura government had taken up the proposal of erection of zero line fencing in 27 spots with Union External Affairs ministry two years ago.Last year, Bangladesh has agreed to do the same in 25 patches barring two spots- Sidhai (Mohanpur) of Agartala and Amritpara under Nutun Bazar police station in South Tripura.As per the Indira-Mujib agreement, no permanent structure is allowed inside 150 yards of the Indo-Bangla border. However, in some cases, it is being allowed as part of goodwill gesture between BSF and BGB."Bangladesh had agreed on principle to erect wire fencing at 150 yards inside India in 13 locations considering the establishment of important institutions, including airport, market and schools and in the first phase it allowed nine places after several stages of discussions," the BSF officials stated.According to MHA, fencing along Zero line was allowed in Kasba Kalibari, Akhaura Check post, Agartala Airport, Mohanpur Bazar, Khowai Bazar of West Tripura, Belonia and Sabroom in South Tripura and Kailashahar of North Tripura.UNI BB AD VS ADG NS1314

    India need to withdraw its important structure from that 27 spot, 150 yards inside from the 0 line.Rules are rules,there should not be any exception.

    News Says: BGB jawans not only threatened firing, they warned to burn down the village too if zero line fencing continued.


    BGB never dared something like BDR. Cant believe they can threat indians. Only we have seen them busy in non-border matters. Atbest sending some useless protest letter to BSF.

    We all know why Bangladesh always oppose to fencing the border, it benefits them.

    But yes, as Bangladesh is continuously opposing fencing the border, they should stop crying when our border guards do their job.

    Bangladesh should keep its residents inside their borders, rules are rules, there should not be any exception.

    We shouldn't have settled anything, all the goodwill gestures from our side is going to be wasted......because it's Bangladesh.

    There will be no opposition if they fence 150 yards inside as per the law.It is only the 27 spots where problem arose.This is tiny part of the whole project. For 99 percent length of the fence,there is no opposition.We are actually grateful to India for this fence.It will strengthen our separate identity as well as security.It is much better to have actual barrier on the ground than just imaginary line on the map.

    There is no space in those areas, already discussed. I think we have done enough for Bangladesh by settling LBA where Bangladesh gained land, by settling maritime boundary through court proceedings when we have very different examples in the neighbourhood, etc. We are not building those fences on bangladeshi land, but on Zero Line, and that's because there is no space.

    However, as I have already mentioned several times in this forum, such goodwill gestures by us towards bangladesh is futile, considering its history of 'ungratefulness' and 'backstabbing' in the last few decades, maybe much beyond that.

    We will have no other option but to increase BSF petrolling in those unfenced areas to check illegal migration into our country, you know the consequences of it, but I guess you guys like playing 'victim' at the cost of life.

    I thought that you have complete control of BD government and so why you worried about backstabbing then?

    What backstabbing? Are you talking about hosting separatists? You hosted and funded Chakmas....the same was done by BD....and LBA doesn't mean shit....if the enclaves and exclaves were to remain as they were nobody would have given a shit....you presented your case about the maritime border in an international court and you lost..you got what you deserved...bd got what it deserved.....stop acting like you were gracious enough to do stuff you are required to do as a country.

    We have agreed to settle the maritime border issue through international court, for a bigger country it is a gracious gesture towards a smaller country. We could have asked for a bilateral settlement also, and you know who would have won that.

    **International court can't take up such cases without the consent of participation from both parties.

    And the topic of history of backstabbing is not for you, it's for other BD members.

    We do not interfere in others' internal affairs.
