    Does anyone here have reliable information on the status of the Indo-Bangladesh barrier?

    I have found numerous conflicting reports of the net, some saying it was completed in 2009 and others saying it is still under construction.

    A clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    Even if there are barriers, those would be barbed wires. Easy to cut and sneak into Indian territory. There is corruption at the borders too, where some security personnel let them sneak in for cash. I knew a guy who sneaked in from Bangladesh and stayed with his Uncle in India and was studying here. Since he did not come on a Visa, he tried the same way to sneak again into Bangladesh to meet his parents. He was caught by BDR and sent to prison in Bangladesh. I saw him a year later again :)
