Fully geared to tackle terrorists waiting to sneak into JK: IG BSF

JAMMU: Terrorists are waiting for an opportunity to sneak into Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan, a top Border Security Force (BSF) officer said on Friday while giving the assurance that his force is fully geared up to meet the challenge.

The officer also said that BSF troops have been trained to deal with the threat posed by the possible dropping of weapons through drones by Pakistan-based terrorists, though no such incident has been reported here so far.

“The major challenges faced by our troops along the Jammu border throughout the year include armed infiltration of terrorists, tunnelling, sniping and of course the drones though no such activity was reported here till date,” Inspector General of BSF, Jammu frontier, N S Jamwal said. (AGENCIES)
