In­dia tight­ens se­cu­rity along Nepal bor­der

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

In an at­tempt to se­cure its por­ous bor­der with Nepal, In­dia has cre­ated five new bor­der posts and de­ployed ad­di­tional troops along the fron­tier no­to­ri­ous for il­le­gal cross­ing over of ter­ror­ists, crim­i­nals and smug­gling of arms. The pro­posal to in­crease bor­der posts along the 1,751-km bor­der with Nepal had been in the pipe­line for some time. The Sashas- tra Seema Bal (SSB) has been man­dated as the lead bor­der guard­ing and in­tel­li­gence gath­er­ing agency for this area.

With the cre­ation of th­ese posts, In­dia now has a to­tal of 455 bor­der posts along the Nepal bor­der.

The bor­der posts have been equipped with sur­veil­lance gad­gets and other equip­ment.
