Complete sealing of Indo-Pak border with ‘smart fence’ by March 2018: BSF DG
Border Security Force DG KK Sharma said that the country’s relations with its eastern neighbour Bangladesh are “very good” at present.
Sealing the Indian border with Pakistan is an immediate “priority” and a smart technology- aided fence will be in place along the Jammu sector by March next year, the BSF chief on Wednesday said.
Border Security Force DG K K Sharma, in the same breath, added that as the country’s relations with its eastern neighbour Bangladesh are “very good” at present, a similar plan to make the Indo-Bangla border impregnable would be taken up once the “resources” are available.
“My priority is Pakistan, as anything happens here (along the Indo-Pak border), it has grave consequences. We are working to ensure complete sealing of this border and make it more fortified,” the Director General said on sidelines of an event to announce the ‘BSF half marathon for martyrs’ to be held in October this year.
