Staff Correspondent, Jashore: Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) detained 41 people when they illegally crossed into Bangladesh from India through the Putkhali-Daulatpur border points in Jashore.

Confirming the matter, BGB 21 Battalion director Imran Ullah Sarkar said the detainees were handed over to Benapole port police station.
