New Delhi: There are 2-6 crore Bangladeshi migrants living in India - the largest illegal migration from one country to another, a former senior officer of India's border guards said Tuesday.


"Nobody can verify the trend of Bangladeshi migrants in India but our estimation is no less than 2 to 6 crore of them in India," former Border Security Force (BSF) additional director general P.K. Mishra said at the launch of his book "Bangladeshi Migrants - A threat to India."

"Many of them have settled between Purnia and Islampur (Bihar), which are very close to the Nepal border. In Pari Pura in Srinagar, there is a Bangladeshi migrant village," he said.
