: Asserting that the militants on the other side of international border (IB) are enjoying support of Pakistani forces during infiltration bids, Border Security Force (BSF) today lodged a strong protest with its Pakistani counterpart over the ceasefire violation and infiltration bids in Jammu. 'BSF has lodged a strong protest with Pakistan Rangers at Border Outpost on international border in Jammu frontier over an attempt to push in ultras under the cover of Pak firing in Tent Post in Kanachak area of Jammu district on October one,' BSF officials said. The protests were registered by BSF with Chinab Rangers at company commanders' meeting at Tent Post in Kana Chak area of the district. The company commander of BSF has shown them proofs of infiltration attempts, firing and grenade blast marks, they said. Pakistan commanders, however, termed them as handiwork of militants and promised to probe into the incident, they said adding that BSF has expressed concerns over such incidents. Three to four militants tried to enter into Indian territory under the cover of Pak firing in Tent Post area in Kanachak area of Jammu district on October one, which was foiled by BSF troops. XíªR¢Îre are repeated infiltration bids from Pakistan. When we protest, they deny. The repeated infiltration bids on IB recently shows that militants on the other side are enjoying the support of Pakistani forces,' Additional Deputy Inspector General (DIG), (Intelligence), BSF, J B Sangwan said.
