Border fencing: Meghalaya govt pushes to save East Khasi village

Shillong: Posed by the threat of Meghalaya’s Lyngkhong village in East Khasi Hills District being cut off from the rest of country due to the ongoing international fencing along the India-Bangladesh border, the state government has instructed the National Building Construction Corporation (NBCC) and the district administration to work on the possibility of pushing the fencing towards the zero line.

Fencing work between India (in Meghalaya) and Bangladesh along the 443 km border started between year 2006-2007. Last year, BSF officials shared that out of 443 km, 341.764 km of the border has already been fenced.
