Jammu (NVI): The Border Security Force (BSF) today detected one more underground tunnel measuring 150 meters long and 30 feet deep along the International Border in Pansar area of Jammu and Kashmir, the officials said.

An official said that on specific intelligence inputs BSF detected another tunnel in the area of Pansar, Jammu region in the series of anti tunneling drive during the wee hours.

They said the tunnel has been detected between Border Post number 14 and 15.

“The tunnel is approximately 150 meters long and 30 feet deep. BSF personnel dug it out during their continued and persistent effort,” official said adding that BSF was searching for this tunnel for a long time and its detection was the effort of the anti-tunneling operation which is underway all along the International Border.

The tunnel detected today is the fourth one discovered in the last six months in the Samba, Hiranagar and Kathua areas and the overall 10th in Jammu region.

Pertinently, in the same area in June last year, BSF had shot down a Pakistani Hexacopter carrying load of weapons and ammunition. BSF troops had also foiled an infiltration bid in the same area in November 2019.
