KL Report


Border Security Force (BSF) Inspector General Aditya Mishra on Friday stated that although the situation at the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir is a little tense, it is under control as the army has been effectively curtailing infiltration attempts.

“The situation is a little tense but under control and we have been effectively retaliating to any attempts that they are making towards infiltration,” Mishra is reported said.
He added that two- three days back there was an incident in which at attempt to breach the fence and storm in was made by the other side but that was made unsuccessful.

“As of now, there are incidents of firing and shelling in specific localised areas. Yesterday, a shell fell on a house and three members of a family got injured. So, that creates a little bit of uncertainty and panic among the civilians,” he added.

Reports said that Mishra further reaffirmed that the security forces are effectively retaliating any attempts of the infiltration.

“We have noticed people trying to come close to the fence and attempt to infiltrate at night,” he said.

“We have noticed dragging marks, but in the last few days, there has not been any successful infiltration,” he added.

On Thursday, three civilians were injured in heavy firing along the (IB). (Courtesy ANI)
