BSF To Work Closely With State Police In Punjab, Rajasthan, WB and Gujarat

Referring to the additional powers given to central paramilitary forces deployed near  International Border (IB), Border Security Force (BSF) on Thursday said that amendments in their operational areas have been made to establish uniformity and they always work in close coordination with state police.

Speaking to ANI, senior Border Security Force official Solomon Minz said border safety is a part of internal security and they are sensitive about it. The idea behind extending operational areas is to curb all kinds of cross-border crime.
