BSF to scan borderline for possible tunnels

With militants infiltrating via a 70-feet long tunnel along IB in Samba district before being gunned down, BSF has decided to scan the borderline to detect more such tunnels. BSF does not want to give any chance to the militants to engineer infiltration along the IB in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts in Jammu frontier, a senior BSF officer said. ?We will scan the borderline to find if any more such tunnels are in the area?, the officer said.

Apart from manual and mobile patrolling and three tier fencing, the BSF is keeping a hawk?s eye on the movement along the IB.

Playing down the detection of tunnel in Chamliyal-Ramgarh sector in Samba district after gunning down of three terrorist, BSF had on Thursday said it was mere a ?rat hole tunnel? used only one time by the terrorists.
