On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) on Friday exchanged sweets at various frontier posts along the 4,096-km-long India-Bangladesh border, officials said.

The gesture was appreciated by both the border guarding forces and the senior officials of both the BSF and BGB are optimistic that such cordiality would further promote mutual understanding, goodwill and shared trust.

BSF officials said that the exchange of sweets between the two para-military forces was done at many places of the six BSF frontier zones in the eastern region.
