Amritsar: In view of the growing of crop wheat in the fields falling in Pakistan, near the line of control (LoC), the Border Security Force (BSF) has put the area on high alert in order to ensure that no anti-social element from across the border dares intrude into Indian territory. The wheat crop in Pakistan’s field, situated just close to the border, had risen from three to four feet. It has started giving BSF jawans as well as its officer sleepless nights and they had intensified their patrolling in the area. In addition to the wheat crop, the weeds in Sakki drain too had grown up to considerable height which also is a cause of concern for the para-military forces maintaining a strict vigilance in the area bordering Pakistan.
It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan’s smugglers as well as other anti-social elements usually make use of this route in order to seek entry in Indian territory. They normally take shelter either in the weeds or in the standing wheat crop and are always in the wake of seeking entry into India. Laced with either arms and ammunition or narcotics, they are out to give way to the criminal activities in different parts of India.
Big seizures of narcotics from these people by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) or sleuths of para-military forces, however, have become order of the day, especially during the past many months. The seizure of seven-kilogram heroin, valued at Rs 35 crore, found abandoned in the fields of Indian territory close to the barbed wire does substantiate this very fact. Moreover, nabbing such Pakistani criminals by Indian para military troops with huge cache of arms and ammunition too has become very common.
