Govt to set up a new task force to end cross-border smuggling

The federal government is setting up a new force to put an end to cross-border smuggling incidents as it has caused a significant loss to the national exchequer over the years. Under the Border Monitoring Initiative (BMI), more than 2,000 officials will be inducted into the security forces and strict action will be taken against relevant authorities indulged in such activities.
