The BSF and the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) today jointly launched the 'Crime-free Zone' project in the Indo-Bangla border area of North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.
The aim of the project is to make the area free from illegal, antisocial and criminal activities by integrating the efforts of BSF and BGB, in assistance with the district administration, NGOs and border population of both countries.
The BSF border outposts Gunarmath and Kalyani and BGB border outposts Putkhali and Daulatpur have been declared as a crime-free zone.
Hosain said more such projects will be launched at various other border outposts along the border in the near future.
