In March this year, the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) conducted their first-ever joint drill – Sundarbans Maitri – to sanitise the international border (IB) of the Sundarbans and strengthen India-Bangladesh relations.
The IB also serves as an international trade route on which merchant ships keep passing through every now and then. The riverine border running over 1,100 km is porous, with cattle, phensedyl cough syrup and fake currency being smuggled through it in the past. The aim of the exercise was to share information and check criminal activity.
