.........BHUBANESWAR: The Border Security Force (BSF) will provide two bulletproof boats for patrolling in cut-off areas of Malkangiri district.
This was informed by Director General of BSF KK Sharma who met Director General of Police KB Singh here on Wednesday. During the meeting, the two discussed an entire gamut of issues.

We also discussed joint operations to be taken up, sharing of intelligence and area domination strategies, Singh said.
