India's BSF obstructs construction of memorial at Tin Bigha Corridor
Dhaka, May 27: The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) is obstructing the construction of 'Bir Muktijoddha Memorial' next to the Tin Bigha Corridor at Patgram in Lalmonirhat.
A flag meeting between the BGB and BSF was held on Tuesday (May 25) afternoon in the Tin Bigha Corridor but no solution was found.

However, on the same day, the BSF called on the BGB to stop work. A flag meeting between BGB and BSF was held on Tuesday in the corridor section to resolve the issue. However, the problem was not solved.
