The Government of Bangladesh has been extending full cooperation through pro-active action against Indian Insurgent Groups (IIG) based in Bangladesh, as a result of which, several top leaders were uprooted from there. During 2009-14, at least 17 top leaders of various IIGs operating from Bangladesh have been arrested and 8 leaders/cadres have surrendered. However, certain IIGs continue to take shelter and use the adjacent Bangladesh territories for anti-India activities like Meghalaya, Tripura and Assam based groups.

The intelligence agencies of both the countries have regularly been sharing information with respect to camps/hideouts and activities of IIGs including infiltration, names of prominent leaders, seizure of arms/ammunition and fake Indian currency notes, etc. The issue of presence of IIG camps/hideouts in Bangladesh is also regularly taken up at various bilateral fora.

Forensic Labs

There are seven Central Forensic Science Laboratories functioning in the country. The Six Central Forensic Science Laboratories (CFSLs) located at Chandigarh, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bhopal, Pune and Guwahati are under Directorate of Forensic Science Services (DFSS).
