Srinagar, November 19

Amid a spike in infiltration attempts by terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC), the BSF chief on Thursday said the period before very heavy snowfall in Kashmir was “very suitable” for militants to cross over to this side and that security forces were prepared to tackle the situation.

Director General of the Border Security Force (BSF) Rakesh Ashtana said the forces were fully prepared to face any challenge on this front. “We are the first line of defence and committed to protecting the country,” he said when asked about the continuous infiltration attempts along the LoC.

He was speaking to reporters after flagging off the 6th edition of ‘Infinity Ride 2020’ from Kashmir to Kanyakumari to support para-athletes. He said the BSF was committed to providing help to civilians in border areas. — PTI
