Situation may hot-up ahead of assembly polls: BSF

KL Report


Inspector General of Border Security Force PS Sandhu Tuesday said militants are in a state of desperation and are justifying their presence in the state just to ensure they get adequate resources.

“Unless you advertise yourself you’ll not be noticed. As they say out of sight is out of mind. Militants are doing the same,” Sandhu said on the sidelines of function, “Pan India Plantation”.

According to GNS, IG BSF said that militants have been special communicated by the cadres across LoC to ‘lose’ weapons against security forces and step up their activities in the state. “They are advertising nothing else. There number has been cut down,”

It can be expected as the assembly elections are coming things will hot-up. The situation is tight, he said. “I can’t predict what will happen in the next moment at the LoC.”

The cat and mouse game, he said, is going to continue not only over here but even in Jammu province as well. There has been the large number of encounter wherein large number of militants was killed, he said. But with every hour the militants are becoming full with desperation.

“All militant camps across LoC which is in hundreds are unable to sneak in. This precursory attempt of ceasefire violations is basically a ploy to push those militants across,” he said.

Asked about calling off Indo-Pak secretary level talks will escalate militant strikes in Kashmir, he said, it would be pre-mature to talk over its direct implications.

Last time militants attacked BSF in village near orchard field. And other time from bus stand. “Our boys would have retaliated in more than equal way. But, ultimately a security personal has to view a minimum collateral damage,” he said.

When asked what is the role of such a huge number of BSF deployment in the state he said, that after Kargil war it was decided one agency will task one thing. “BSFs role in that manner is to control the LoC and the International Border in Jammu,” he said. Other than that, if called for election duty or Amarnath Yatra. “We are ready for it,” he said.
