Kolkata. The BSF said on Friday that there has been a tremendous increase in the number of illegal Bangladeshi migrants returning home in the last one month after the implementation of the CAA across the country. A top official of the paramilitary said that it seems that this number has increased due to fear among illegal migrants after the implementation of the revised Citizenship Act (CAA). BSF Inspector General (South Bengal Frontier) YB Khurania said, "There has been a significant increase in the number of illegal Bangladeshi migrants going to the border country in the last one month. Only in January, 268 illegal Bangladeshi migrants were caught, most of whom were trying to go to the neighboring country.
BSF has recently introduced new fences instead of barbed wire to prevent infiltration along the Bangladesh border. . This new fence, which is being implemented by BSF, cannot be cut easily, while the old barbed wire was easily cut and illegal intruders used to come to India. Currently, the smart fence, which is about seven kilometers long, has been planted in the Silchar sector of Assam, bordering Bangladesh.
Explain the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) granting citizenship of India to religious minorities of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan There is a dispute across the country. While a section is supporting it, a large section is also protesting by calling it against Muslims. On the other hand, the government claims that it is a law to provide relief to persecuted religious minorities in neighboring countries.
