However, no arrests could made as the smugglers fled in jungles.

The seizures were made Tuka, Nayabazar and Lyngkhat in East Khasi Hills district, at Gopinathkilla village in South West Garo Hills, at Ganganagar village in West Khasi Hills and Dumkaphal village in South Garo Hills.

The smugglers cut fencing wires or used unfenced areas to smuggle cattle, the statement said.

Many parts of the international border are still unfenced in Meghalaya.

In its coordination meeting with the Border Guards of Bangladesh, the BSF has identified and plugged almost all the vulnerable patches of the border by increasing troop strength and employing technical support, the statement said.
