Border visual springs surprise for SC

Indo-Bangladesh border is perhaps the most porous of all the borders on this planet. This was what the Supreme Court has  observed after a glimpse of the visuals it received from the Upamanyu Hazarika panel.

Procured from the one man panel set up to study the border situation, the CD has many stunning visuals which neither the Assam government and nor BSF have refused. It exposes how anybody from the neighhbouring country can infiltrate from across the porous portion of the international border without any hiindrence.

The visuals of cattle along the river route stunned even the supreme court bench when it was examined by the Hazarika panel which visited the border in May.
