New Delhi: The BSF has developed a `spy
fidayeen bomb` vehicle which can stealthily enter into enemy
territory for surveillance and explode itself to eliminate a
militant.

The force`s technical wing has developed a battery
operated, four-wheel-enabled vehicle which has a night vision
camera and a cavity to carry an explosive to neutralise the
enemy.

"The apparatus can be operated by a remote control at a
distance of 200 metre. It has a video camera attached to it
for receiving visuals and can function at night also," BSF
Inspector Rajendra Prasad said.

The device, costing Rs 20,000 has been developed by the
Assam-Meghalaya frontier of the force and the functioning of
the apparatus was also demonstrated to BSF Director General
Raman Srivastava during an exhibition here.

The orange coloured four-wheeler`s signals can be
received on a screen by the handler outside an enemy hideout
and can be used by troops in operations, Prasad, whose team
developed the device, said.

The para-military force has got a full-fledged technical
wing which takes up research and development of such gadgets
and devices which are useful for the force in it`s operational
areas.

Other units of the force have also developed equipments
like low-cost battery chargers, electronic tracker for stolen
weapons and wireless extension for POLNET among others. The
force recently got a patent on an Jammer device for IEDs.
