“India stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of our brave martyrs,” the Tripura chief minister said.

NEW DELHI — Biplab Kumar Deb, the chief minister of Tripura, strongly condemned the killing of two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel in a militant ambush while on patrol duty near a border outpost in Tripura’s Dhalai district early this morning.

In his message on Twitter, he said, “I strongly condemn the cowardly attack against our BSF personnel in Dhalai.”

“The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. India stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of our brave martyrs,” the Tripura chief minister said.

Early this morning, two Border Security Force (BSF) personnel, including a sub-inspector level officer, were killed in a militant ambush near a border outpost in Tripura’s Dhalai district, 90 kilometres from Agartala.

The National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT), which is banned in Tripura, is accused of being responsible in the incident.

According to preliminary information, the militants took the two service weapons of the deceased security personnel.
Senior officers went to the scene, including DIG Northern Range L Darlong, Additional SP of Dhalai district Kallol Roy, and others, to assess the situation.
