Drone activity declines along border in Jammu: BSF

The Border Security Force (BSF) has foiled all cross-border infiltration attempts this year and the International Border in the Jammu frontier is incident free and safe, a senior official said.

Drone activity has also largely decreased in Jammu and the majority of weapons and explosives dropped from unmanned aerial vehicles have also been recovered, BSF Inspector General (Jammu Frontier) DK Boora said at a press conference here.

“The (International) border is incident free despite huge pressure on the forces and attempts from across the border to carry out infiltrations,” he said.

“All infiltration attempts have been foiled. Seven infiltration bids were foiled and all the guides and infiltrators eliminated,” he said, adding that none of the infiltration attempts this year had been successful.

Boora added that four AK assault rifles, seven pistols and nearly 50 kg heroin had been seized.

“The border in Jammu is totally safe. We have been able to ensure safety and security throughout the year. We hope that there will be no infiltrations from across the border in 2023,” he said.

Boora said he hoped that such a situation would prevail on the borders in the days to come.

“We promise that there will be no compromise with the security of the borderline. We will work to ensure zero infiltration,” he added.

Referring to the pressure on troops along the International Border during the winter months as the focus of infiltration shifts from the Line of Control (LoC), he said there was always pressure on them.

allow anyone to use them.”

Replying to a question on Pakistan’s alleged involvement in terror activities along the International Border, he said, “It is not possible that such activities (infiltration, drone flights) are done without the involvement of their (Pakistan) security agencies. They fully support them (terrorists) and are part of these operations.”

“We keep protesting with our Pakistan counterparts for these activities,” he added.

When asked about the terrorists who entered through the tunnel via Samba and engineered the attack on Sunjwan, he said,“The tunnel was detected and the terrorists who came through killed. It shows the coordination of the security forces.”

Calling narco-terrorism an effort to finance terror operations, Boora said, “We did not allow it to be successful on the Jammu border.”

Asked about the alleged involvement of a BSF officer in the recruitment scam being investigated by the CBI, he said the officer was being probed.

“The BSF has nothing to do with. He has done it in his personal and individual capacity,” Boora said.
