The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has sounded high alert on the international border along Pakistan following intelligence inputs about probable intrusion bid by some terrorists.

The Border Security Force (BSF) has cautioned its personnel deployed in Rajasthan to remain extra vigilant, official sources said.

According to intelligence inputs, some terrorists could attempt to enter the Indian territory from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK) or other areas from across the border.

“After such intimation from MHA, we have tightened security along the Rajasthan border while taking extra vigil over activities across the border,” said a senior BSF official.

“We always remain alert on the border, but this time we are extra cautious about activities from across the border,” the official added.
