No let up in cross-border infiltration bids: BSF
The BSF Wednesday said there is no let up in infiltration attempts from across the LoC in Jammu region.
New Delhi: The BSF Wednesday said there is no let up in infiltration attempts from across the LoC in Jammu region with militants waiting desperately to sneak in.
Border Security Force (BSF) Director General Raman Srivastava said the troops of the force, deployed along the LoC and the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir, are
regularly thwarting such attempts.
"There are repeated attempts (to infiltrate) especially along the Jammu frontier....Lots of militants are waiting across the border....They (militants) are at it all the time.....We are at our job all the time," Srivastava said.
"We have repulsed each attempt of infiltration... Except only once when they got through some time back and they were killed two days later," he told reporters after flagging
off a contingent of 125 BSF men for deployment in Congo under a United Nations mission.
Pakistani troops have indulged in nine ceasefire violations last month, which officials said were aimed at facilitating infiltration. Two BSF jawans were killed while
thwarting infiltration attempts.
