Jammu: Asserting that Pakistan has not dismantled terror infrastructure which was still intact across the border, the BSF on Wednesday said it was closely monitoring the movement along Jammu frontier.
"The terror infrastructure is intact across the border. That has not been dismantled. We are carefully examining every activity across the border line and will take appropriate action whatever action is required to be taken (to foil any such activity from across)," Inspector General BSF, Jammu Frontier, Rakesh Sharma told reporters here today.
IG Sharma was replying to a question about cross-border activities along border and situation along the International Border (IB) since the director general-level talks between the Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers last month.
"As the reports indicate terrorists are still active and available on the launching pads across in Pakistan," he added.
"We do not lower our guards. We keep a very close watch the activities across the border and surveillance is kept throughout the day and night. Infiltration can be attempted any time by the people across and we are prepared to foil them," he added.
"After the talks between DGs of BSF and Pakistan Rangers in New Delhi from September 9-12 this year, there is peace on the borders. There is no extra movement that would concern us," the IG said.
"As I said, we will not take anything lightly as far as border security is concern. We have not decreased the day and night monitoring along the border line," he said, adding that there is clear cut directions to the troops to maintain alertness.
Replying to a question whether there was any infiltration bid after DG-level talks, IG Sharma said, "after DG level talks, there was one report of suspected movement of militants close to border and we have lodged a strong protest with Pakistan Rangers."
