New dellhi: The Border Security Force onTuesday said 'tension' prevails along the western front in the wake of surgical strikes conducted by Indian forces and it has witnessed movement of UAVs very close to the Indo-Pak border in the recent past.
"We have noticed UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) coming 100 meters upto the border...may be they (Pakistani forces) want to check our preparedness but I can assure you that we are fully capable of giving a befitting reply and we will not allow any nefarious design of terrorists to succeed," BSF Director General K K Sharma said.
BSF DG said that vigil has been increased (along western borders). "All the defence and security forces establishments are on their highest alert. There is tension on the western border..we are having active engagement (with Pakistan) at the Line of Control and we are receiving shelling from the other side. However, we are in supportive role at the LoC (to army)," BSF Director General K K Sharma told reporters here.
Sharma added that while there is "tension" at the International Border (IB) that runs along Jammu, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat, there has been no ceasefire violation till now in these areas. The BSF chief added the force has not issued any order for vacating villages on the border and such directives may have been issued by the respective civil administrations of the states.
