Incidents of intrusions and ceasefire violations along Indo-Pak border in Jammu frontier have declined due to better coordination between troops of the two sides, a top BSF official said on Saturday.

"Incidents of intrusions and ceasefire violations have declined sharply (along Indo-Pak border Jammu frontier)," BSF Inspector General (IG) of Jammu Frontier S Chattopadhyaya told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

Giving details, IG said there have been 37 bids of intrusions and ceasefire violations in the first six months of 2010 and only three such incidents in past six months.

To a question about tension along the border due to ceasefire violations, he said Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistani Rangers have increased their interaction and this has helped in easing out tensions.

The BSF has been manning nearly 200 km of IB in Kathua, Jammu and Samba sectors in the state.
