BSF's Op 'Sard Hawayein' to foil infiltration attempts on Jammu borders
1/25/2020 11:06:41 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 25: The Border Security Force has launched Operation 'Sard Hawayein,' along the 202-km long stretch of international border from Kathua district to Akhnoor sector of Jammu, to foil the attempts made by Pakistan to push terrorists into the Indian Territory, especially ahead of the Republic Day.
''Pakistan is in process of infiltrating terrorists on this side of the border, to conduct terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir and to thwart this nefarious design, the Border Security Force has launched operation 'Sard Hawayein' along the international border,'' intelligence sources here on Saturday.
''Though days are sunny in Jammu, but still cold weather conditions prevail and fog also grips the plains and taking an advantage of the climate, Pakistan may push terrorists into the Indian Territory, but the BSF is on alert and have taken all preventive measures,'' sources said.
''For that matter, Operation 'Sard Hawayein' (cold winds) is launched along the international border to counter the nefarious designs of Pakistan, especially in view of Republic Day, to be celebrated on Sunday,'' they added.
''Based on intelligence inputs, the operation has been launched, which will continue in the coming days. BSF has intensified the surveillance along the border by taking various precautionary and preventive steps.
''Additional troops have been deployed on the border, while patrolling has further been enhanced to foil the conspiracy of Pakistan,'' official sources said.
They added that the jawans have been directed to remain extra cautious and keep their eyes and ears open.
''The intelligence agencies have warned that Pakistan may get in touch with some Afghanistan-based terrorist organisations and attempt to carry out major attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, around Republic Day.
''Infiltration attempts can be made through rivulets, big rivers, streams located close to border and for this, special BSF squads have been constituted to foil infiltration attempts from all routes,'' they said and added that there are inputs that the terrorists may target military camps, police stations and important government buildings.
''The reason that Pakistan wants to push terrorists from close to the international border, is because it is located along the Jammu-Pathankot National Highway and there are many important government buildings, military and paramilitary force cantonments,'' sources added.
''Along with making the border surveillance more attentive, BSF is also continuously searching every location near border. Pakistan, like previous incidents, can also infiltrate terrorists through tunnel and to counter this, BSF experts are already on job,'' they said and added that apprehending hideout of some suspects, over ground workers and weapons near fence, BSF personnel are launching searches on a routine basis.
''BSF has also pressed bullet proof vehicles in service to carry on patrolling in the locations, where Pakistan targets BSF men by sniping and where it becomes tough to reach, especially in bad weather conditions and rain,'' sources said and added that under the operation, jawans are also keeping a Hawk's Eye from bunkers on every activity across the border.
''Smart fencing, thermal imager, CCTVs as well as many modern equipment, are being used fully by the BSF, under this operation, to foil every nefarious plot of Pakistan,'' sources said.
