Arpita Ghosh speaks during Zero Hour about the harassment of local people in border areas by the BSF

Thank You Madam for giving me the opportunity to speak on this very important issue.

My parliamentary constituency is a border area; the Bangladesh border. As you may know, the BSF is stationed there.

Madam, I keep receiving complaints from local people about the harassment by the BSF on them. School-going girls often complain of harassment.

Recently, a student studying in Class IX committed suicide and in her suicide note she mentioned she was harassed on the way to school.

Problems like this are heard of in many border areas where BSF is present. I would request the government to look into this matter and give us feedback.

Thank you very much.
