Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) detained three people along with 31 Bangladeshi passports while they were trying to enter India through Benapole International check post on Thursday.

The detainees are identified as Shawon Hossain Jibon (30), son of Jahangir Hossain of Bagachra Baguri village in Sharsha upazila,  Anisur Rahman (41), son of Abdur Rahim of the same area and Abu Sayed Tushar (40), son of Fajer Ali of Shagkarpur village in Jhikargacha upazila.

Acting on a tip-off that a large number of passports were being "smuggled" to India through Benapole International Check post, BGB members took position in front of the passenger terminal and arrested them with passports, said Jashore-49 BGB Battalion Commander Lt Colonel Selim Reza.
