New Delhi, Jan 25: Amidst reports on Pakistan tunnel being cited along the border, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said that the Government is monitoring Pakistan's border activities and will analyze its implications to India on Monday, Jan 25.
“We are closely monitoring whatever has been happening in Pakistan and both our Defence Ministry as well as our ministry will certainly work together to analyze what it means by way of implications to India," Krishna said.
Krishna's statement came close to the media reports about Pakistan digging tunnels in Sargodha district of Pakistan"s Punjab province near the Indian border.
In a media report, an official investigating the report said that the government was trying to established the reason behind the digging of the tunnel.
“An attempt is being made to establish the purpose of digging up such tunnels which are really big in size. These clearly can"t be meant for transport as is obvious from the images available; unlike ordinary tunnels they don"t lead on to roads,", the official said.
With the report ruling out connection of the tunnel to any roads, the possibility of the tunnel being used for storing nuclear weapons or missiles is being considered.
