BSF has been making all-out efforts to prevent all types of Trans-border crimes on the International Border, especially smuggling of Narcotics to make “Tripura – a Drug Free State”. Of late, smugglers have started exploiting teenagers and women folks for smuggling of Yaba tablets and other drugs, which is a matter of grave concern.
Hence, there is a requirement of participation of every walk of the society to create awareness about the Narcotic drugs among general public and help Security Forces in curbing the menace.
