BSF detects tunnel on IB, infiltration bid foiled in Samba sector

BSF authorities have detected yet another tunnel on International border in Ramgarh sector of Samba in Jammu region.

“With the timely detection of tunnel having an opening on our side, a major infiltration bid has also been foiled,” reliable sources here said.

They said that the BSF authorities early morning came to know about a hole in the fields near by Fatwal Post of Ramgarh, adding, “a JCB was pressed into service to ascertain the facts but 2 to 3 rounds were also reportedly fired from across the border.”

BSF, however, have claimed of foiling nefarious designs of Pakistan by timely detecting the opening of a tunnel besides foiling planned infilitration bid in Samba belt.

Pertinent to mention here that a ‘rat hole’ tunnel was used by the terrorists on November 29 last year to sneak into Indian Territory but they were eliminated by the BSF men in Ramgarh.

BSF, however, will also brief the media to divulge the details on tunnel later, a spokesman said.
