BSF's overenthusiastic search operation to trace stockade of 'Ganja' or cannabis is becoming a major source of trouble for ordinary civilians . The BSF by law enjoys concurrent jurisdiction from zero line of the border to one km within but now the BSF jawans and officers have started operating well within indian territory . In the latest such operation a group of BSF jawans last night stormed the site of a programme on 'Kirtan' or devotional songs in chorus in Taksapara area under Melaghar police station in Sonamura subdivision with the purpose of conducting a search operation for cannabis. The BSF jawans switched off the lights and started storming households but the people of Taksapara area stood up in protest and in resistance . 

Faced with resistance the unruly BSF jawans opened fire in which a youth Sukanta Paul and an anonymous lady sustained injuries and had to be admitted to GBP hospital for treatment. Before opening fire the BSF jawans had resorted to lathi-charge to disperse irate people. Since the police and BSF did not disclose any information the identity of the battalion from which the BSF jawans had come could not be known.
