According to the official, no member of his family has contacted the Indian authorities so far. BSF sources said, “The international border passing through Sonamura sub-division is not completely closed despite barbed wire fencing. There are many houses in Kalamchouda Gram Panchayat where the bedroom is on this side of the boundary and the drawing room is on the other side. Even the fencing could not be done due to the heterogeneous geographical location of many places.
