Meet reviews NE security

Silchar: A meeting between intelligence agencies and security forces deployed in the Barak Valley and Mizoram was held at Mashimpur, the headquarters of BSF's Mizoram and Cachar Frontier.

At Monday's meeting, BSF inspector-general JC Pandey welcomed all delegates to review the security scenario in the Barak Valley and Mizoram besides the impact of underground activities from the rest of Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya.

The BSF IG said the country was facing both internal and external threats. "The security scenario in our neighborhood is not good. The threats to our borders vary from military to intelligence. We have to be ready to face any emergency," added Pandey.

Under such circumstances, the responsibility of the intelligence has increased manifold and co-ordination among ntelligence agencies and security forces was required, said the IG.
