Border Security Force (BSF) foiled an attempt to smuggle arms, ammunition and narcotics into India in Arnia area along the International Border from Pakistan side, on the night of 19-20 September. "During search of the area, 2 pistols, 3 magazines and ammunition and 62 packets of drugs were also seized," said BSF Inspector General of Jammu Frontier, NS Jamwal.
National Conference president and former chief minister of JandK, Farooq Abdullah, on September 19 said in Lok Sabha that border skirmishes are on a rise in Jammu and Kashmir and talks should be held with other neighbours, like the engagement is taking place with China. "Like we are talking to China to resolve issues, we need to hold talks with the other neighbour country as well. People are dying every day, border skirmishes are on a rise. We need to find some solution," said Abdullah.
The Border Security Force unearthed a tunnel dug from Pakistan to push terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir. The tunnel's opening was discovered in J&K's Samba, just 400 m from a Pakistani border post. The BSF showed sandbags with Pakistani markings which were used to reinforce the structure of the tunnel. The sacks had names of Pakistani factories located in Karachi. NS Jamwal, Inspector General of the Border Security Force, said that the tunnel seemed to go to a depth of around 25 ft. A J&K police officer said that pushing terrorists via tunnels was an old tactic of Pakistan, possibly imitated from Hamas which also uses underground routes to enter Israel.
