The Border Security Force on Tuesday said it had witnessed movement of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) very close to the India-Pakistan border in the recent past.
The BSF admitted that “tension” prevails along the western front in the wake of surgical strikes conducted by the Army on terror camps across the line of control.
As part of measures to beef up overall security, the border guarding force has also reviewed the preparedness of security mechanisms along the eastern front with Bangladesh so that terrorists are not able to use that country to sneak into India and launch attacks.
“No doubt, the overall vigil has been increased (along western borders). All the defence and security forces establishments are on their highest alert+ . There is tension on the western border … we are having active engagement (with Pakistan) at the line of control and we are receiving shelling from the other side. However, we are in supportive role at the LoC (to Army),” BSF Director General K K Sharma told reporters here.
