Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has agreed to receive border management training from Indian Border Security Force (BSF).
The BSF will provide training to Bangladeshi border guards on four categories, BGB Director General (DG) Maj Gen Aziz Ahmed said at a press briefing at BGB Pilkhana Headquarters in Dhaka today.
During a five-day DG-level meeting in India that started on August 20, the BSF offered to provide training on border management, bomb identification and disposal, dog squad management among the junior and senior BGB officials, Maj Gen Aziz said.
BGB gave its consent in the regard, he said.
To receive the training, a team will be sent to India before the next DG-level meeting, scheduled to be held in December, he added.
While addressing the briefing, the DG identified smuggling as one of the main reasons behind the border crimes.
