Tunnel in Jammu sector points to big terrorist attack plan: BSF

R.S. Pura (Jammu and Kashmir) : A day after the Border Security Force (BSF) discovered a tunnel near Nikki Tawi river in Jammu sector, they suspected that a big terrorist attack was being planned through the tunnel in near future.

BSF IG Rakesh Sharma told reporters that it appeared that a big terrorist attack was being planned after infiltration through this tunnel in near future.

He said the BSF has contacted the Pakistani Rangers and brought it to their notice, adding that they would now present the evidence before the Pakistan Rangers, requesting them to come forward for an investigation.

“We have conducted a detailed investigation of the tunnel that was detected yesterday. We have also contacted Pakistani rangers and brought it to their notice. We will present them the proof and the evidence,” Sharma said.

“We expect them to initiate an investigation and take action. We have requested them to come forward for investigation. They said that they would take action,” he added.

“When we looked at it carefully we found a tunnel. A detailed examination revealed that attempts were made to dig a tunnel from Pakistan side. The entry point of the tunnel is from Pakistan side and the opening in the India side was not yet ready, as we got to know about its existence,” Sharma had said last evening.

“So, a possible infiltration attempt by Pakistan was foiled. It is around 20-22meters long. We will probe the matter and take it to a logical conclusion,” he added. (ANI)
