Agartala, 23rd of January 2024 : This is in reference to the article published on 23 Jan’ 2024 in your newspaper regarding alleged assault on reporter by BSF.

On 22nd Jan 2024 an unknown person was caught clicking photos of restricted area close to border and on being asked stop he continued clicking pictures. He also tried to talk with the DIG BSF who was visiting the area. Since the border is on operational alert due to Republic Day 2024, the action of the individual was found highly suspicious. BSF asked him to produce identification, and since he couldn’t produce any credential to prove his identity, he was detained and further produced before police for further necessary action.

At police station his identity was revealed as a reporter and he was released immediately.  Border being a sensitive area all precautions are required to be taken to keep a check on antinational elements. The action taken by BSF was strictly as per protocol.

The report published in your newspaper is misleading and one sided. BSF would like to issue a strong rebuttal against the article published by your paper.  It is further requested that in future before publishing any such incident which is likely to tarnish the image of a reputed force like BSF, corroboration of the facts may be done. Your cooperation in this regard will highly be appreciated.
