Pakistan using underground tunnels to push terrorists: J&K DGP
A 20-25 feet long tunnel originating from across the border was found by the BSF team along the International Border
In its endeavor to step up terrorism and push terrorists into India, Pakistan is using cross-border underground tunnels and drones to drop weapons for them, said the chief of Jammu and Kashmir police.
“Digging of tunnels beneath the IB is part of the nefarious designs of Pakistan to facilitate infiltration of terrorists into this side to step up terrorism,” Director General of Police Dilbag Singh was quoted as saying by PTI whose report was carried by The Times of India .
The tunnel, as informed, has a depth of 20-25 feet originating from Pakistan and was found by the BSF team near the border-fencing on August 28.
“I saw this huge tunnel which is almost similar to the one detected in Chanyari in 2013-14. After the Nagrota encounter, we had received specific inputs that infiltration had taken place through a tunnel and was searching for it,” the DGP was further quoted as saying.
The Jammu and Kashmir police chief said they have made adequate deployment and are taking all necessary precautions to frustrate the designs of Pakistan.
The report also quoted officials as saying that the DGP has reviewed the overall security situation, especially along the International Border.
