Bangladesh won't allow anti-India acts: BDR

April 08, 2008 15:59 IST

Assuring that Bangladesh will not allow anti-Indian activities, Dhakha on Tuesday called for evolving a system with New Delhi for timely exchange of intelligence and information.

"The most important issue for us would be timely exchange of information regarding criminal activities near the border so that timely action can be initiated," Bangladesh Rifles chief Major General Shakil Ahmed told reporters in New Delhi.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the five-day India-Bangladesh Border Coordination Conference, which began today at the Border Security Force headquarters in New Delhi.

The BSF raised the issue of terrorists operating from Bangladeshi soil, after probe into blasts in Uttar Pradesh pointed towards involvement of militant groups like Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islamia, operating from there.

The BDR has information regarding use of Indian territory to perpetuate crimes in Bangladesh, Ahmed said adding "Information that we have today might not be valid six months later. We are trying to evolve a system to deal with the criminals as soon as they perpetuate the crime".

He said Bangladesh will not allow its territory to be used by terrorists and criminals inimical to India and is ready to cooperate with New Delhi on all issues.
