Pakistan has not responded to India’s request for a joint probe of the tunnel detected inside its territory five days ago even as Pakistan Rangers visited the site on Sunday evening.

“We were expecting their response but it has not come till now. We have sent the proposal as their understanding on this issue between two countries. We are awaiting it but can’t force them,” said BSF IG (Jammu frontiers) Rakesh Sharma.

According to sources, the Pakistan Rangers visited the site of the tunnel for a few minutes though they did not hold any meeting with the BSF on the issue.

“They visited as per the rules of the border management between the two countries but didn’t meet any senior official,” said a BSF official, adding they were in regular touch with the Pakistani Rangers and expected a ‘positive’ response. “We have given then documentary evidence. They don’t have any other option besides the joint probe,” the official said.
