To prevent infiltration on the international border in Jammu and Kashmir during the winters is a major challenge for the security forces as foggy conditions and extreme cold bring visibility to zero. Taking advantage of this situation terror operators from across the border have often tried to push terrorists, and smugglers to the Indian side thus posing a major challenge to the BSF.
This year, however, the Border Security Force seems to be ready for the challenge as it has deployed sophisticated equipment along the border that includes night vision gadgets, heat seeking sensors, and similar stuff to catch the intruders. Anti-fog lights, thermal imagers, infra-red cameras apart from increase in the number of vehicles, and manpower has been deployed to keep effective vigil.
Across the border particularly in sensitive areas the BSF has installed special lights to meet the border situation which would help jawans to keep a watch on the enemy movement. Although there has been meetings between BSF, and Pak Rangers to maintain the ceasefire but Indian officials said that there is no guarantee that there could be peace on border as Pak forces might push terrorists. During the winters in J&K, the militants always try to infiltrate as it is difficult for the security forces to spot them. However the new tech measures are likely to stop them in their steps if they try to cross over to India this winter.
