AGARTALA, March 23 (TIWN): Two youth of Bitarban area under Ramnagar out post are found missing from March 22. The youths are identified as Amirul Hussian (11) and Rudra Mia (12) both residents of bitarban area.

According to sources, both the youths went out from their home on March 22 but they did not return home. A case has been registered in this regard by the parents of the missing youths. “We are trying our best to trace the youth”, said police.

According to the local people of the area Amirul Hussian was engaged with a racket of Bangladeshi robbers.  It is to be mentioned here that theft cases involving Bangladeshi youths have been rising sharply in Tripura."In 2003, 273 cases of theft were reported in various police stations of Tripura, and last year (2012) 568 such cases were registered," a police official said."Up to July this year, 319 cases of theft have been recorded. Mostly Bangladeshi youths were involved in these theft cases," he said.
Tripura shares an 856-km border with Bangladesh. Around 80 percent of the border has been fenced. A large portion of the border is unfenced, porous, mountainous and riverine, making it advantageous for anti-social elements. Police said cross-border criminals not only use the unfenced areas to enter India, but also climb over the fence using ladders.

Young Bangladeshi boys are "hired" and sent to Tripura for various crimes including theft, police said."After stealing various materials and cash from remote habitations and vacant houses near the border areas, these youths deposit the materials with their employer against some daily wages
"Recently, three young Bangladeshi thieves demonstrated in front of police how they enter the Indian territory, break into locked houses and then dispatch the stolen material to their Bangladeshi bosses," he mentioned.
