DHAKA: Even as the controversy over infiltration into India via the Bangladesh border rages on, the director general (DG) of the Border Security Force (BSF) Wednesday said he was not confident that there was "zero entrance" of Bangladeshis into India.
"We have pushed back 15,000 Bangladeshis this year. The border is a complex one and I cannot say with confidence that there is zero entrance from the Bangladesh border," BSF DG U.K. Bansal said here.
Bansal is on a three-day visit to Punjab, which has a 553-km international border with Pakistan.
"We are keeping a strict vigil at the Bangladesh border. It has its own character and problems. It is a human issue and it cannot be completely sealed as people have relatives on both sides," Bansal said here.
