Two Bangladesh-based smugglers were apprehended by BSF troops of BOP Dawki in West Jaintia Hills district while they were trying to cross the border last night.

The apprehended persons were identified as Md Rippan and Md Sippan, both hailing from Rousulpur village under Gainghat Police Station in Sylhet district, the BSF said.

During search, 14 bottles of liquor, some Indian rupees along with Bangladeshi Taka, two mobiles with two Bangladeshi SIM, were recovered from their possessions, the BSF said.

Another Bangladeshi national identified as Anamuddin of Bangladesh's Sylhet district was apprehended by BSF troops in East Jaintia Hills district while he was trying to cross the border, they said.

Anamuddin possessed a fake Indian voter ID under the name of Atuar Rahman of Assam's Karimganj district, the BSF said in a release.

The apprehended person and seized items have been handed over to the police for further disposal and legal action, the BSF said.
