The Border Security Force has discovered an 80-metre-long tunnel which is being used to smuggle cattle in Bangladesh.
The tunnel is being dug through a tea garden by suspected cattle smugglers near the Chopra-Fatehpur border outpost. It was found in north Bengal adjacent to Kisanganj in Bihar, reports The Hindustan Times.
Devi Sharan Singh, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of BSF on Tuesday said that the smugglers were digging the tunnel under the fence in order to smuggle cattle to Bangladesh.
Reportedly, the tunnel was being constructed during the night time in darkness for a long time through a tea garden.
After the discovery of the tunnel, DIG said that the BSF has enhanced patrolling along the border.
