JAMMU: Drone intrusions, cross-border tunnelling and smuggling of narcotics have emerged as new challenges for the Border Security Force (BSF) in the Jammu region. The border-guarding force neutralised five intruders and apprehended three Pakistani intruders this year, besides shooting down several drones from across the border and seizing huge quantities of arms, ammunition and narcotic substances sent from Pakistan to fan terrorism in J&K.

Sharing details of BSF activities in the Jammu region on the eve of Raising Day on Tuesday, BSF IG (Jammu Frontier) D K Boora said, “2021 witnessed manifold challenges like drone intrusions and increased attempts by Pakistan to push terrorists into India but BSF Jammu thwarted all attempts of the adversary and foiled their nefarious designs.”

“BSF is manning about 192km of international border and Line of Control alongside the Indian Army in Jammu region. Several tunnelling and smuggling attempts were made from across the border, but thwarted by BSF. As a result of robust domination and surveillance on the international border, there has been continued peace on the Jammu border,” IG Boora said.

“BSF battalions in Rajouri/Poonch also seized arms/ammunition in the hinterland during the year, which include five AK-47 rifles, 15 AK-47 magazines, 421 rounds of AK ammunition, one AK-56 rifle, 16 pistols, 36 pistol magazines, 348 rounds of pistol ammunition, 10 hand grenades, four grenades, besides other things,” the IG said.

He added that BSF also made the border population aware of drone operations carried out by Pakistan-based elements and many drone awareness programmes were organised. “Apart from these, several civic action programmes catering to the needs of border population were conducted by the BSF battalions where medical equipment, sports items, stationery items and Covid kits (sanitizers, masks, etc) were provided,” IG Boora said.
