Keeping in view the vulnerability of border due to the high grown wheat crops and heightened activities of smugglers and anti-national elements on border, Inspector General, BSF (Punjab Frontier) Mukul Goel has issued operational guidelines to all the sectors under Punjab Frontier for further strengthening the border domination to effectively check activities of anti-national elements on the Punjab border with Pakistan.
Accordingly, field commanders have been directed to maintain heightened vigil on border to thwart the attempts of anti-national elements. Tactical operations are being mounted to foil the attempts of the smugglers during the growth of wheat crops, a BSF official said.
