Central team inspects security at Indo-B'desh border in wake of Nagrota attack

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Keeping in mind the recent terror attack on an Army base in Nagrota, Jammu and Kashmir, the Ministry of Home Ministry (MHA) on Wednesday deployed a five-member team to visit the Indo-border in Bangaon to inspect the security arrangements.

A meeting was also conducted with the (BSF) troops deployed at the border, asking them to increase surveillance to halt any infiltration bids from across the border.

Briefing the media here, BSF DG KK Sharma said that concerted efforts have been made to modernise the nation's border fences.

"A part of border is unfenced including water bodies so humanly not possible for me to put manpower in such areas. We are making efforts to fill the unfenced gaps using technology," he said.

Talking about the recent Samba encounter, Sharma informed that the terrorists has infiltrated through a small tunnel in border area, adding that as of now no technology exists with the BSF to detect tunnels.

"Since surgical strikes, more than 15 Pakistan Rangers have been killed and more than 10 militants neutralised. Also many Pakistan border outposts have been destroyed. Post surgical strikes, we started an operation called 'Operation Rustom' as we anticipated that problems won't be confined to LoC and will affect the IB too," Sharma said.

Meanwhile, blinds (unexploded shells) were destroyed today at the site of the deadly terror attack on an army base in Nagrota, Jammu and Kashmir, by a bomb disposal team during the combing operations that are still underway.

Extensive combing operations resumed today morning in Nagrota, where terrorists attacked an army base in which seven defence personnel lost their lives.
