The presence of Bangladeshi muggers deep inside India's territory in Meghalaya has raised serious concerns, even as the state police busted a hideout of Bangladeshi robbers at Rajaju. On Saturday, the Special Operation Team assisted by Meghalaya Police busted a camp of Bangladeshi dacoits in a forest located in between Ranikor and Rajaju road linking to the coal rich export point in Borsora of West Khasi Hills district. District Superintendent of Police, M Kharkrang told reporters that two Bangladeshi nationals were arrested from the hideout and about eight others evaded arrest. Police also seized one local made carbine, two country made pistols, lethal weapons, camouflaged dresses from the camp. During the interrogation, the arrested duo confessed that they have been part of the 10 member gang from across the borders, who are involved in looting vehicles passing from the stretch. He added that the police are also now trying to unearth the links of this group with the 24 Bangladeshi nationals, who were arrested a couple of weeks back from Borsora sector. The 24 Bangladeshis arrested are now languishing in Shillong district jail.
