    Samba: A Night Vision Device reportedly used by terrorists who were killed by security forces last month along the Border in Samba district of and has been recovered by BSF during a combing operation.

     

    The operation by BSF was carried out to locate and secure cross-border tunnels used by terrorists to enter the Indian territory and defuse improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

     

     

    Three terrorists had infiltrated into India via a tunnel along the IB in Chamliyal of Ramgarh sector on November 29, but were killed by Border Security Forces in an encounter.

     

    “The area along IB where the militants had entered and encounter took place was ploughed to find any tunnel or IED or grenades in Chamliyal area,” a senior BSF officer said.

     

    The step was taken to dismantle tunnels, and defuse IEDs and grenades the militants might have left out. A Nigh Vision Device was found from site of the encounter during digging, he said.

     

    The device reportedly belonged to the terrorists and was used by them to locate their way and the movement of security forces.

     

    BSF had last month decided to scan the areas after they found that the terrorists had infiltrated via a 70-feet tunnel along IB in Samba district before being gunned down.

     

    “We will scan the borderline to find if any more such tunnels are in the area,” the officer said.

     

    Inspector General of BSF, Jammu Frontier, D K Upadhayaya had confirmed on December 1 that the militants “had come out to this side via a tunnel on the intervening night of November 28 and 29 in Chamliyal area.”
