Jammu: Pakistan-made tunnel to push terrorists unearthed

There has been a spike in the incidents of Pakistani drones dropping arms, ammunition, drugs along the international border and line of control in Jammu and Kashmir

Another Pakistan-made terror-tunnel was detected on 23 January in Kathua district of in the same area, where the Border Security Force (BSF) had shot down a Pakistani drone ferrying arms and ammunition barely seven months ago.

BSF said the tunnel appeared to be six to eight years old and the possibility of it being in use by Pakistani terrorists could not be ruled out.

This was the fourth tunnel to be detected in the past six months, the other three having been detected in Samba, Hiranagar and Kathua. This tunnel is the 10th to be found in the Jammu region.

“The BSF has detected a 150 m to 175 m-long trans-border tunnel along the Indo-Pak international border in Kathua district. It is 30 feet deep and has a diameter of two to three feet,” said BSF inspector general NS Jamwal.

“The tunnel appears to be six to eight years old and it has been found at the same place where BSF had shot down a Pakistani drone last year on 20 June,” Jamwal added.

The BSF IG said that the tunnel has been detected near the Pansar post of the BSF.

“Across the international border, it originated from Shakargarh. Just opposite to the tunnel, Pakistan has its Abhiyal Dogra and Kingre De Kothe posts,” said the IG.

Jamwal said that such tunnels cannot be built without the involvement of the Pakistani establishment.

“A proper engineering effort has gone into this tunnel as well, he said, and added that possibilities of it having been used by Pakistani terrorists cannot be ruled out.

The tunnel was detected between border pillar number 14 and 15, said the IG.

The BSF troops had foiled an infiltration bid in the same area in November 2019. On 20 June last year, BSF had shot down a Pakistani drone in Rathua area around 5.10 AM. The drone fell into a field. The BSF had recovered a M-4 US-made semi-automatic rifle, 60 rounds in two magazines and seven M67 grenades among other items.

The hexa copter drone itself weighed around 17.5 kg and the consignment weighed around five to six kilograms.

There has been a spike in the incidents of Pakistani drones dropping arms, ammunition, drugs along the international border and line of control in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan has been digging trans-border tunnels along the international border, especially in Kathua and Samba sectors.

On 13 January, BSF detected another trans-border tunnel along the 198 km long India-Pakistan international border in Bobbyian village of Hiranagar sector in Kathua district.

The tunnel was 150 m to 160 m long with a diameter of two feet to three feet. It was dug 25 feet to 30 feet beneath the ground.

On 22 November, BSF had detected a similar trans-border tunnel near Regal post in Samba sector that was used for crossing over by four Jaish terrorists, who were eliminated at Ban toll plaza near Nagrota of Jammu district on 19 November.

The four terrorists had used the tunnel to cross over from Pakistan and had travelled in a Kashmir bound truck before being eliminated in swift operation at Ban toll plaza.
