‘India and Bangladesh ships Need surveillance’

The navy on Thursday called for developing a monitoring system to prevent terrorist attack as cargo vessels movement between Bangladesh and West Bengal largely remains “unchecked” while they pass through the Sundarbans. With River Sea Vessel category ships being used for India-Bangladesh coastal shipping, Naval Officer-in-Charge (West Bengal) Commodore Ravi Ahluwalia said keeping a track on them was difficult as they don’t have transponders installed on them. “Passing through Sundarbans to Namkhana and northward further towards Kolkata, these ships remain unchecked,” said Ahluwalia.
