A source in the state police’s counter-terrorism wing said that Pakistan appears to have started mimicking Hamas fighters digging underground tunnels to enter Israel. Let us tell you that this is not the first time BSF has detected such tunnels on the border. Even before this, the tricolor has been found. In September last year, the BSF conducted a search operation to locate tunnels in the border area to divert water from the plans of Pakistan. 

Officials said BSF Director General Rakesh Asthana has instructed the commanders deployed along the border to ensure that the anti-infiltration system remains effective and there are no flaws on the border. During the patrolling in Jammu’s Samba sector on Thursday, BSF personnel came to know about this tunnel located near the border fence in Indian territory.

It is noteworthy that after the recent death of five armed intruders in Punjab bordering the international border, BSF has conducted a large tunnel search operation on the international border. The BSF is responsible for the security of the nearly 3,300 km international border adjoining Pakistan and in the past, tunnels have been detected in Jammu areas bordering the border.
