The team successfully prevented an attempt to smuggle 60 live cattle and is now conducting an in-depth investigation into the incident.

This intervention follows a significant arrest that took place in November 2023, where the Karimganj Police detained two cattle smugglers and rescued seven cows along the Indo-Bangladesh border.

The accused, Jamir Ali and Shahidul Hussain, were apprehended following a strategic operation led by the Girishganj Watch Post under the supervision of in-charge Nishikant Dey.
