Sealing the Indian border with Pakistan is an immediate “priority” and a smart technology-aided fence will be in place along the Jammu sector by March next year, the BSF chief said on Wednesday.
“We are implementing a comprehensive integrated border management (CBIM) plan and are running a pilot project to make our international border (IB) along Pakistan secure,” Border Security Force DG K K Sharma said.
This project will be in place in the Jammu sector (of the IB) by March next year, Sharma said.
Sharma further added that as the country’s relations with its eastern neighbour Bangladesh are “very good” at present, a similar plan to make the Indo-Bangla border impregnable would be taken up once the “resources” are available.
“My priority is Pakistan, as anything that happens here (along the Indo-Pak border), has grave consequences. We are working to ensure complete sealing of this border and make it more fortified,” the Director General said on sidelines of an event to announce the ‘BSF half marathon for martyrs‘ to be held in October this year.
