In a gesture of mutual cooperation and emphasis on the well-being of the border populations of both countries, India has handed as many as 577 Bangladeshi intruders to the neighbouring country since 2018, and the numbers this year have been quite good in the first five months, with over 100 people returned to their country.

Officials in the Border Security Force (BSF) said these intruders were caught and handed over to the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) — the border guarding force of the neighbouring country, which shares 4,096 km borders with India.

As the India-Bangladesh border is considered to be the most peaceful International Border, both countries ensure to maintain their relations and such good will gestures are shown from both sides during the flag meetings of the border guarding forces of the two nations.

Of these 577 Bangladeshi intruders, there were women, children and men belonging to the villages located near to the borders.
