Expressing concern over Pakistan last month thrice violating the ceasefire, DK Boora, Inspector General (IG) of Border Security Force, Jammu Frontier, on Tuesday said that the border force will not allow anyone with nefarious intentions to set foot on Indian soil.

Boora told reporters that the Pakistan was given a befitting reply by the BSF. It is our duty to protect the civilian population and we have been doing this effectively.

He said that when the mountain passes close due to snow in winters, the focus of terrorists and their handlers shifts to the borders on the plains.

Since November, Pakistan has violated the ceasefire thrice. The response given to them has caused huge loss on Pakistan’s side. Our effort is to maintain peace but if Pakistan does not understand this then a similar response will be given, Boora said.

He said that the violation by Pakistan was not done for infiltration purposes and the actual reason can’t be shared among the public as it can impact the security.

Earlier on 9 November, a BSF head constable Lal Fam Kima, was killed when Pakistan Rangers opened unprovoked firing with automatic weapons along the International Border (IB) in the Ramgarh sector of Samba district.

Replying to a question on drone dropping of arms, ammunition and drugs from across the border, the BSF IG said that such incidents have decreased in the Jammu Frontier after some people on this side were nabbed. Whenever a drone is sent from Pakistan, there must be someone to receive the consignment.

It is worth mentioning that prior to reinforcement of the ceasefire agreement in February 2021, as many as 5133 violations were recorded in 2020 and 3479 in 2019.
