Indian security forces in a recent operation went almost 200 metres inside Pakistan’s side to unearth a tunnel which was used by terrorists to infiltrate inside Indian territory, a top government official said on Tuesday.
“Security forces went inside Pakistan for almost 200 meters which was the starting point of the tunnel, used by the terrorists eliminated last week by Indian forces,” a top official said.
A 150-metre long underground tunnel suspected to be used by terrorists for infiltration was detected near International Border in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba sector on November 22.
In the third week of November, security forces recovered mobile phones from the possession of terrorists killed by them which helped the forces to unearth a tunnel.
Border Security Force (BSF) DG Rakesh Asthana on Tuesday talked about the operation during Raising Day and said, “On the basis of the analysis of mobile phones recovered from terrorists eliminated by security forces, on November 22, BSF unearthed a tunnel used by terrorists to infiltrate in Samba sector.”
Asthana said this on the Raising Day of BSF while giving a speech. Though the DG BSF didn’t say anything on the operational part of it.
