BSF is in touch with Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and is keeping a close eye on the situation.

"We are constantly in touch with Indian intelligence agencies and also with BGB," he said.

Twenty foreigners, including an Indian teenaged girl, were hacked to death by suspected IS militants inside a cafe popular with expats in the diplomatic zone of Dhaka in the worst terror attack in Bangladesh before commandos launched an assault on Saturday killing six attackers and capturing one alive.
