New Delhi, Nov 30th, 2016: The Border Security Force (BSF) Director General K K Sharma on Wednesday said it found a cross-border tunnel along the International Border (IB) in Samba, which was presumably used by three militants to infiltrate into India.
The terrorists were gunned down by the BSF, who had spotted them, on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday.
Briefing the media on the Samba incident, BSF DG said that infiltration could have happened through a small tunnel in Chamliyal and that as of now no BSF has no technology to detect a tunnel.
He added that, “We will take up the Samba infiltration bid and tunnel issue with our Pakistani counterparts.”
Since surgical strikes, more than 15 Pakistani Rangers have been killed and more than 10 militants have been neutralised. He also informed that many Pakistani border outposts have been destroyed, DG further said.
BSF DG also informed that after surgical strikes, BSF started operation called ‘Operation Rustom’ as BSF anticipated problems won’t be confined to LoC and that it will affect IB too.
Security personnel on Tuesday foiled an infiltration bid by a group of terrorists who tried to sneak in from Pakistan through the International Border in Jammu and killed three militants.
