New Delhi: BSF is fully alert and alive to any challenge along the International Border with Pakistan even though it is peaceful, a top official said on Thursday.
"There is nothing unusual along the IB. But still we are fully alert and prepared for any challenge either at the IB or the Line of Control (LoC)," BSF chief Subhash Joshi said here.
He was asked by reporters if the IB has seen any ceasefire violation as recently witnessed along the LoC.
The LoC is peaceful now since top military commanders of India and Pakistan agreed yesterday to de-escalate the tension triggered by last week`s brutal killing of two Indian soldiers.
BSF guards 2,289 km of the IB along Pakistan.
The BSF DG was talking to journalists after flagging off a 160-member force contingent to Haiti for UN peacekeeping duties.
