Farmer discovers tunnel on India-Pakistan border

Asserting that “infiltration and smuggling” were intentions behind digging a 400-mt-long tunnel from Pakistan side into India in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba sector, BSF on 30JUL12 said a strong protest would be lodged with Islamabad.

The tunnel was detected on July 28 after an area caved-in in a straight line at two-three places due to rains near the border fencing near Chillayari Border Out Post (BoP) of BSF along the International Border in Samba sector.

The tunnel with a dimension of 3×3 feet is about 400 mt into Indian side from the IB, where pillars of demarcation stand. It is dug at a depth of 25 ft below the ground and also had a provision for air supply through a 2-inch pipe, Inspector General S K Mishra told reporters.
