The Border Security Force (BSF) unearthed an underground tunnel suspected to be used by the four Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists who were killed by Indian forces in Nagrota on 19 November. This discovery further validates Pakistan’s role in promoting terrorists’ infiltrations to India. The cross-border construction is said to be a well-engineered one that is 200 metres long and stretches from Pakistan to India. This was found in the Samba district in Jammu.

The BSF further stated that the passageway seems to be a freshly dug one, used for the first time during the Nagrota episode. It stretches at around 160 metres into India and about 40 metres is estimated to be on the other side of the border. Sandbags with markings of Karachi were also found inside the channel, while thick vegetation carefully hid its exit.

In a joint effort between the local police, army and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), four J-e-M militants were neutralised at the Ban plaza toll on 19 November. Basis information received from intelligence agencies, the truck in which the Jihadists were traveling was blasted by the security forces after their repeated appeals to the four youth to surrender failed.
