    Published on August 29, 2020

    The Border Security Force (BSF) today said that they have detected a tunnel near the India-Pakistan International Border (IB) in Samba district of Jammu Division in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

    According to the Inspector General of BSF in Jammu N.S. Jamwal, this tunnel is around 150-yard long from the zero line adding the mouth of the tunnel was properly reinforced by sandbags which have the  markings of Pakistan.  

    The senior BSF officer said, the sandbags have proper markings of Pakistan, which clearly shows that it was dug with proper planning and engineering efforts adding without the concurrence and approval of Pakistani Rangers and other agencies, such a big tunnel cannot be built. He said that a protest will be lodged with Pakistani authorities, asking to take action against the guilty. The tunnel is approximately 20-feet long of three to four feet in diameter in Indian territory near border fencing.

    For the past few years, Pakistan has been adopting the tunnel strategy to push terrorists into Jammu. Since 2012, BSF has detected as many as seven such tunnels on the IB. Today’s is the seventh such tunnel found on the border since July 2012, exposing Pakistan’s sinister game plan of trying to push terrorists  into J&K for staging terror attacks.
