Early times Report

Jammu, Nov 22: Detection of one more tunnel on International Border (IB) has put question mark over functioning of the Border Security Force (BSF) in guarding the border. It is widely believed that terrorists killed at Ban Toll Plaza on Thursday had managed to sneak into this side through that tunnel. “It seems terrorists involved in the Nagrota encounter used this 30-40 metre long tunnel as it's a fresh one. We believe they had a guide who took them till highway,”, sources in the BSF said.
Reports said that a patrolling party of BSF found a small tunnel in the Regal area of Samba on the IB. “The tunnel is located close to the IB and is suspected to be used for infiltration,” sources said, adding that senior officers have rushed to the spot and investigation into the matter is going on”.

Originating from Pakistan-the trans-border tunnel was detected from the field of a farmer of village Galar-situated on the IB in Samba district. The place of opening of the tunnel was around 170 meters from the IB towards the Indian side.

Early Times’ report authenticated as top brass of security agencies did not rule out the possibility that terrorists, eliminated at Nagrota, have managed to sneak through this tunnel.
