‘BSF repairing damaged Indo-Pak border fencing on war-footing’

The repair work on the border fencing damaged due to flash floods is on at ‘war-footing’, Border Security Force (BSF) said on Friday, in the backdrop of increased infiltration attempts from across the border in recent days.

“The work to repair the border fencing damaged due to flash floods is going on fast,” a BSF officer said.

The flash floods in the Basantar and Ujh rivers, which was triggered by heavy rains, have caused damage to 700-800 metres of three-tier border fencing along India-Pakistan border in Kathua-Samba border belt of the state in August.

The patches of 200-300 metres of border fencing had suffered damages in Kathua, Samba and Jammu districts due to flash floods along International Border in riverine belts.

At some places, the border fencing has been fully washed away by the flash floods in the riverine areas of Basantar belt.
