Tuka ( India -Bangladesh border ) :   Frequent seizures by the Indian border guards  indicate, smuggling of cattle has shown a phenomenal increase this year along the  International border Though desperation on the part of cattle smugglers is seen,  they are making  daring bids to cross over the cattle to Bangladesh but most of their attempts have been foiled. 
In a recent  incident, cautious BSF troops deployed at Tuka in East Khasi Hills District of Meghalaya noticed suspected movement near International Border. The Ops party rushed towards the spot but the  miscreants ran away taking  cover of thick vegetation and bad weather. Subsequently, BSF troops recovered 29 cattle worth  more than Rs. 5.5 lakhs.  The smugglers were  trying to smuggle  from the unfenced area but  BSF jawans deployed along the border   foiled  their attempts.  The smugglers are  also trying   to smuggle cattle through fenced areas by breaching the fence .
In another incident the Indian border guards deployed at Nayabazar, East Khasi  seized 24 cattle worth  more than Rs. 4.9 lac while being smuggled from India to Bangladesh.
After continuous anti -smuggling drives and putting extra vigil on the border, the BSF has been achieving  success in countering the cattle smuggling effecting considerable seizure in a row at zero line.
