Denting the nefarious designs of Pakistan, the BSF Jammu detected a cross border tunnel on 4th May 2022 in the area of BOP Chak Faquira opposite samba area. This tunnel detection was the result of rigorous and consistent efforts of BSF troops during a fortnight long anti tunneling exercise carried out in this area.

This tunnel is freshly dug out and is suspected to be about 150 mtrs long originating from Pakistan side. With the detection of this tunnel BSF Jammu has foiled  the nefarious designs of Pakistan based terrorists to disrupt upcoming Amarnath Yatra. 

The tunnel opening is about 2 feet and so far 21 sand bags have been recovered which were used to strengthen the exit of Tunnel. Detail search of the tunnel will be carried out during the day. 
D. K. Boora IG BSF Jammu lauded the devotion and dedication of BSF troops in detecting this tunnel.

This is the fifth tunnel detected in less than one and half year. This shown the evil strategy of Pakistan establishment to create trouble in India. BSF has been always in forefront to safe guard the borders and create sense of security among border population. He added that  efforts of BSF will continue further to detect any other possible tunnels.
