High security in Samba area after detection of suspected tunnel

Security has been tightened in Jammu’s Samba area after a small opening suspected of a tunnel near the international border on Wednesday.

The Border Security Force (BSF) spokesperson said that a small opening was found in the general area near fencing in the Samba area, which is suspected to be a tunnel.

The BSF is carrying out a detailed search in the area today.

On April 22, two Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists were neutralised in an encounter in the Sunjwan area of Jammu.

It was established during an investigation that they were picked up by a mini truck from the Sopowal area of Samba and had infiltrated from somewhere there.

The BSF had launched a massive anti-tunnelling operation in the area at the time, and yesterday, a tunnel was detected by the BSF jawans at the international border in the Samba sector.

Two AK-47 rifles, arms and ammunition, satellite phones and some documents were recovered.

Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police Dilbag Singh had said that the killed terrorists could be part of a “big conspiracy” to sabotage Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the union territory.
