A day after terrorists targeted an Army camp in Jammu’s Kathua district, the Border Security Force Saturday said they were searching for a tunnel along the Pakistan border from where the infiltration could have taken place since there was no apparent “breach of fence”.
A top BSF officer said a physical inspection had been initiated to check the presence of any tunnel along the 179-km International Border (IB) in Jammu. Two years ago, the BSF had discovered a 400-metre-long tunnel in the Punjab sector along the IB.
“The security along the Jammu border was already high due Narendra Modi’s visit to Hiranagar two days ago. We have scoured the border but haven’t found any breach of fence. We have a strong suspicion there is a tunnel from where infiltration is taking place. Our teams are looking for it,” said the officer.

A formal inquiry has been ordered to probe the security lapse on the part of the BSF.
“It is also possible they could have come from some other area and stationed themselves here for days before launching an attack,” the official added.
