BSF commanders asked to spend 25 nights a month at posts along border


The BSF has directed its battalion commanders to spend at least 25 nights in a month at a forward post along the India-Pakistan International Border (IB) in Jammu as part of its renewed efforts to fortify the ‘anti-infiltration’ grid in this region, official sources said Tuesday.

The commandants and their second-in-command officers have been asked to strictly follow the directive and monitor their units to check “each and every” movement along this front, which is highly sensitive and vulnerable from the point of infiltration of terrorists from the Pakistani soil and unprovoked firing incidents.

A directive, accessed by PTI, said the senior commanders of the force “have taken a serious view on inadequate night halts” undertaken by the field commanders in the recent past and hence they have been asked to now spend “at least” 25 night stops at border posts. Read More
