Islampur, Feb. 23: The North Dinajpur district administration has requested the BSF to intensify patrolling and help police prevent incidents of cheating in border areas during Madhyamik examinations beginning tomorrow.
North Dinajpur district magistrate Smita Pandey had been visiting examination centres for the past two days and held meeting with BSF officers to prevent mass copying.
A senior police officer said the BSF’s help had been sought in border areas. “The BSF has nothing to do with security at exam centres. However, they have been asked to remain alert. There will be adequate police force, but the BSF has been requested to come to the aid of the police if needed. The BSF has also been told to intensify vigil as a deterrent.”
