Jammu, Jan 30 : Not a single incident of intrusion from Pakistan took place in the last six months along the international border in the Jammu region due to vigil by the Border Security Force (BSF), an official said Wednesday.
The security forces have also stepped up vigil along the international border (IB) after the Jan 8 killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Mendhar sector of Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The BSF intensified its vigil along the 198-km long international border (IB) following the discovery of a 400-metre long and 20-foot deep tunnel that originated from Pakistan into the Indian side July 28, 2012, BSF Inspector General Ravi Krishna told reporters.
"We had taken a serious note of this misadventure of Pakistan and lodged a strong protest with Pakistani Rangers on the issue, and on our own side we stepped up the vigil on the border as also strengthened our intelligence network," he said.
"There has been no incident of intrusion across the IB (international border) since then," he added.
The official's comment came amid a continuing row between India and Pakistan over the Jan 8 incident, in which two Indian soldiers were brutally killed, one of whom was beheaded, by Pakistanis.
