BSF launches ‘Operation Alert’ along 200 km border to curb militant movement

The Border Security Force (BSF) has launched “Operation Alert” along the over 200 kilometer long International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir to curb the increasing movement of infiltrating militants from across the border.

“There are inputs that there is movement of militants and accordingly, we have declared ‘Ops Alert’ on the border,” Inspector General of BSF Jammu Frontier, Ram Awatar told reporters here today.

The BSF gave a military send off by organising Wreath- laying ceremony at Frontier headquarters here in the honour of the late Head Constable Radha Pada Hazara, who was killed in sniper firing by Pakistan rangers along the IB in Samba sector yesterday.
