NEW DELHI: Some terrorists groups were still operating from Bangladesh, Prime Minister’s Special Envoy on Afghanistan-Pakistan Satinder Lamba said here on Thursday. He, however, appreciated the strong action taken by the Sheikh Hasina-led government in the neighbouring country against such groups.

“It is well-known that terrorists, insurgents, militants and criminal elements respect no civilian law and territorial boundaries. Some of these groups and their associated agencies continue to have their hideouts and fake Indian currency network in Bangladesh,” Lamba said, while delivering his keynote address at the fourth India-Bangladesh Security Dialogue.

The event was organised by Observer Research Foundation and Bangladesh Enterprise Institute.

“There is a need to sustain the current levels of cooperation to jointly eradicate the menace of insurgency, terrorism and militancy from our soil,” Lamba said.

He assured the delegates that India remained committed to completing the ratification process and implementing the Agreement on the Land Boundary, signed during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s last visit to Bangladesh.
