The Home Ministry has written to various states, asking them to clamp down on cattle smuggling to Bangladesh. Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Friday that not only has the BSF been asked to be more alert regarding cattle smuggling on India’s eastern border, but even states, from where these cattle come, have been asked to ensure that they are not sold for slaughter in Bangladesh.

“Ever since we have come to power, BSF has been able to bring down cattle smuggling significantly. Earlier about 23 lakh cattle were smuggled to Bangladesh every year. BSF has now brought it down to just 3-3.5 lakh. To stop it completely, we need to put in more effort,” Singh said while delivering the Rustamji Memorial Lecture at BSF’s Investiture ceremony. “We have also written to various states to ensure that it is completely stopped,” he added.
