Pak polls over: Intelligence warns of enhanced border activity
New Delhi, Aug 4: With the Pakistan elections over now, India suspects that there would be heightened activity along the border and in Kashmir. Several encounters in Kashmir have taken place in the past two weeks in Kashmir and this is a signal that there is trouble brewing.
The army in Pakistan had focused all its resources to ensure that the elections went on smoothly. Until such time it had decided not to venture out and cause problems for India.
The Intelligence Bureau says that they suspect that Pakistan would up the ante once the new Prime Minister, Imran Khan is sworn in.
The IB warns that with the election over there would be increased infiltrations. During the elections, since the army was busy the number of infiltrations had gone down. The army plays a crucial role while providing cover fire to terrorists who infiltrate.
Recently Border Security Force Director General K K Sharma said that the force has been giving a befitting reply to unprovoked firing incidents on the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan. He also stated that the BSF planned to plug gaps along the country's borders with Pakistan and Bangladesh by rolling out a Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS).
"BSF plays a very important role in guarding two very important borders of Pakistan and Bangladesh. We have different kinds of challenges on both the borders whereas on the Pakistan side, we know that we have a hostile neighbour. We know they keep on trying to infiltrate militants," the BSF DG had said.
