Jammu, Jun 27 (UNI) Flash floods have damaged a part of border fencing in Ramgarh Sector of Samba district, which the Border Security Force (BSF) had started repairing in the wake of infiltration bid in Samba district on May 9, an official here today said.

Though the BSF is working out day-night to strengthen the border security by constructing 'baandh' and clearing vegetation (bushes) for transparent vision across the border to keep surveillance, the 'damaged' border fencing is giving sleepless nights to the border guards.

''The flash floods in the first week of June in villages Kamor and Maluchak of Samba district have 'damaged' around 300 meters of fencing on the international border,'' an official source told UNI. ''The repairing work was initiated the very next day but due to the early monsoons, rains have spoiled the sport but it will be done soon'', he asserated.

However, the flash floods in Basantar and Devak rivers passing through Samba district damaged 300 meters of border fencing.

BSF, along with other agencies, are working hard for early revamping of the fencing to keep check on the infiltration attempts from across the border by the militants and Bangladeshis.
