The Border Security Force (BSF) has detected a suspicious tunnel on the Samba border along the Jammu and Kashmir border. BSF sources said that the suspicious tunnel was detected by the soldiers during an anti-tunnel operation in the border outpost area of Chak Fakira at around 5.30 pm. BSF Deputy Inspector General SPS Sandhu said the tunnel was found in a common area near the fence in Samba.
Sharing some pictures of the suspected tunnel, Sandhu said, “Further search could not be done due to darkness. A detailed search will be done in the morning light.”
While D.K. Bura IG BSF Jammu appreciated the dedication and dedication of BSF jawans in locating this tunnel. He said that this is the fifth tunnel discovered in less than a year and a half.
“A newly dug tunnel, 150 meters from the IB and 50 meters from the border fence, was traced in front of the Pakistani post Chaman Khurd,” an official said on condition of anonymity.
It is 900 meters from the Indian side. It starts about 300 meters from the border post Chak Fakira.
The BSF has launched a massive operation to detect any tunnels along the International Border (IB) after the encounter on April 22 in Jammu’s Sunjwan area. Two heavily armed Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists wearing suicide jackets were gunned down in an encounter after attacking a bus carrying Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel. An assistant sub-inspector of CISF was martyred in the encounter and nine security personnel, including two policemen, were injured.
