In­dia stepped up ef­forts to se­cure the bor­der in wake of an at­tack on the Pathankot air­base, which In­dia al­leged was stormed by ter­ror­ists who crossed over from Pak­istan.

The bor­der force had started putting up the wall on un­fenced river­ine stretches last year in Jammu sec­tor, which was more prone to ter­ror­ist in­tru­sions till three ter­ror­ists car­ried out an at­tack in Gur­daspur in Pun­jab in July.

The ter­ror­ists were be­lieved to have en­tered In­dia 5km down­stream of Bamiyal near the Tash bor­der out­post — a river­ine point not cov­ered by a laser wall as well. Bamiyal has BSF posts on either side of the river with a man on each post keep­ing a watch on the river round the clock.
