Jammu, November 18

At least 150 students of different schools from Jammu today visited the border outpost (BOP) on International Border in RS Pura sector. The objective was to get first-hand knowledge of tough conditions being faced by soldiers there.

The 36th battalion of Border Security Forces (BSF) organised the visit on the direction of Ministry of Home Affairs. “Students were taken to forward BOPs of the BSF along the international border at RS Pura sector and were shown weapons and special equipment used by forces to check infiltration across the border,” official sources in the BSF said.

The students were briefed about the origin, role and task of the BSF. A documentary highlighting the role played by BSF in nation building, including a photo gallery, was shown.

“They were also briefed about the BSF’s contribution in combating militancy in Punjab, J&K, North East and their role played in liberation of Bangladesh as well as in combating extremism in the Maoist-affected areas,” the official said.
