Jaisalmer: The border areas of Rajasthan are on alert these days. Not for infiltrators from across the border but for Pakistan's reported plans to poison water bodies there.
There are specific military inputs that elements in Pakistan are planning to poison water bodies in Jaisalmer and Badmer, located near the Indo-Pak border. These water bodies are used to supply water to the Indian Army and local villages.
Following the alert, local authorities have taken steps to thwart any attempt to poison water bodies and have increased vigil near them.
Public has also been asked to remain alert, said an official of the water supply department.
The development comes amidst increasing tensions between India and Pakistan in the wake of growing instances of ceasefire violations and terrorist attacks.
Recently, the scheduled NSA-level talks in New Delhi were cancelled amid disagreement over agenda of the dialogue.
