India to erect fence along B’desh border

India will erect single row fencing instead of double row fencing in several areas along the border with Bangladesh, officials said here Tuesday. About 80 percent of the 856-km India-Bangladesh international border in Tripura has so far been fenced with double rows to check trans-border movement of militants, prevent infiltration, and curb border crimes. 'More than 61 patches of the India-Bangladesh border with Tripura could not be fenced following objectionS by villagers,' a Border Security Force (BSF) spokesperson said. 'Bangladesh has been objecting to the fencing at the zero line,' the spokesperson added.
