Let us tell you that on April 22, two Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists were killed in an encounter in Sunjwan area of ​​Jammu. Investigation revealed that he was picked up by a mini truck from Sopowal area of ​​Samba and had infiltrated from there.

After this BSF launched a massive operation in that area. BSF jawans found a tunnel on the International Border in Samba sector on Wednesday. Let us tell you that Pakistan, failing to break the security cordon imposed on the border, is using the geographical conditions of Samba district for infiltration.

Terrorists are being sent by digging tunnels under the cover of reeds and sandy and loamy soil. Similar is the geographical location of the tunnel found on Wednesday near Chak Fakira post on the Samba border. There are also sandy, loamy soil mounds, where there is no danger of water seepage.

A long tunnel was made by digging under the ground

A long tunnel has been made by digging under the ground, due to which there is also a possibility of terrorist infiltration. Earlier, on 29 August 2020, a tunnel was also found in Banglad, three kilometers from Chak Fakira post. After Banglad, the tunnel was discovered on 22 November 2020 in the BSF search operation near Rigal on the Samba border itself. At the same time, in January 2021, a tunnel was found in Hiranagar, Kathua. (conversation)

professional engineers engaged in tunneling

Sources in intelligence agencies said that the Pakistan Army is using the services of highly professional engineers to infiltrate the tunnel. Such places are chosen for the tunnel, where digging is easy and there is no risk of water leakage. Most of the tunnels found so far have been found on sandy and loamy soil. There was a mound-like space on the ground above these tunnels.

Sleeper network also active

The network of over ground workers of Pakistan is also active on the international border in Kathua and Samba. In such a situation, it is believed that from digging tunnels to infiltration, this network is working in transporting terrorists to their bases. Recently, some people have been arrested from the border area of ​​Kathua district, whose wires are connecting to the tunnel dug for infiltration. At the same time, many suspects have also been caught from the border areas of Samba and Jammu district.
