In a significant development, the Border Security Force has found a tunnel in Samba, Jammu and Kashmir. The tunnel starts in Pakistan along the border and ends in Samba, according to Jammu BSF IG NS Jamwal.
“We were getting input about the existence of a tunnel in Samba area (of Jammu & Kashmir). A special team found the tunnel yesterday. This tunnel is around 150 yards long from the zero line. The mouth of the tunnel was properly reinforced by sandbags,” said BSF IG NS Jamwal.
According to BSF, the tunnel is approx 20 feet long of 3-4 feet in diameters in Indian territory near border fencing. Pakistan made sandbags with Shakargarh/Karachi written were found at the tunnel’s mouth to hide it. The place of opening of tunnel is around 170 meters from International Border towards Indian side.
BSF believes that without approval of Pakistani rangers such a big tunnel cannot be built.
“The sandbags have proper markings of Pakistan, which clearly shows that it was dug with proper planning & engineering efforts. Without the concurrence & approval of Pakistani Rangers & other agencies, such a big tunnel cannot be built,” said Jamwal.
