The border guarding forces of India and Bangladesh will discuss trans-border crimes, among other issues, in the 48th Director General-level talks beginning in the neighbouring country from Wednesday.

The four-day talks will be held in Dhaka, a Border Security Force (BSF) statement said on Tuesday.

Besides border crimes, the talks between the BSF and the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) would focus on prevention of illegal migration and human trafficking, smuggling of cattle, fake Indian currency notes (FICN) and gold, narcotics and psychotropic substances, the statement read.

Activities of Indian insurgent groups based in Bangladesh as well as joint efforts for effective implementation of Coordinated Border Management Plan (CBMP), confidence building measures, extension of crime free zone in area of responsibility of Guwahati and Tripura frontiers and issues related to border infrastructure are also expected to be discussed, it said.

A 10-member Indian delegation headed by BSF Director General Rajni Kant Mishra along with senior officials of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and other law enforcement agencies will meet 24 members of the BGB led by its chief General Md Shafeenul Islam.

The Indian delegation will reach Dhaka for the bi-lateral talks late on Tuesday.

The first session of the border coordination conference between the BSF and the BGB will be held on Wednesday, said the statement.

Apart from discussing border related issues, the two forces would also focus on better coordination between them.

The last BSF-BGB border coordination conference was held in Delhi in September last year.

A friendly kabbadi match between the BSF and the BGB will be played on Wednesday evening to mark the occasion.
