    Infiltration bid by boat foiled by BSF near Kutch - India - The Times of India

    Infiltration bid by boat foiled by BSF near Kutch
    TNN 27 December 2009, 05:51am IST

    AHMEDABAD: Border Security Force personnel along the Kutch border have gone into high alert after two Pakistani boats with armed occupants, made yet another attempt to infiltrate into India from Harami Nala area near Sir Creek. The attempt took place at about 12.30 am on Saturday. The Harami Nala is a sluggish and shallow water channel, spread over 500 sq km near the Pakistan border.

    Officials are taking the incident seriously as BSF personnel and the intruders exchanged fire for nearly three hours before the boats turned around.

    According to officials, the armed men were tenacious and were familiar with the hostile terrain. No fish was ever caught with a gun, officials add. Besides, no fisherman would risk his life in this sensitive area in the middle of the night given the increased security here.

    Significantly, in the last two months, this is the third incident where armed men have tried to infiltrate through Harami Nala.

    On November 13 this year, BSF had fired to foil intrusion bid by seven Pakistani boats which were trying to enter India from near Harami Nala. Nearly 500 rounds were fired then.

    Ahmedabad: Border Security Force personnel exchanged fire with trespassers at Harami Nala on Saturday that lasted for three hours.

    However, the attempt to enter Indian territory was foiled by the BSF, whose officials have confirmed the incident. There have not been many incidences of cross-border firing in Kutch in the past.

    According to BSF sources, fishermen from Pakistan tried to enter Indian territory in their boats near Harami Nala.

    "Our jawans on duty opened firing to stop these fishermen and the latter fired back." The exchange of firing continued for three hours. However, there were no injuries or casualties on the BSF side", said an official.

    The official added, "We have no information about injuries on the other side. They scaped by taking cover of darkness.

    However, the BSF has seized two boats which were used by the intruders."

    In my opinion, we should immediately deploy few Dhurv's in this vulnerable area which is fast becoming a hot bed for intrusion from Pakistan. Regular survelliance would enable BSF to have a better situational awareness and take the intruder's by surprize.

    Exactly Zoom , I agree with you , this is one of the most vulnerable border area, enemy have tried through it in 1965. Better surveillance will help BSF greatly to defend the border.

    Yes, because regular firing isn't the only solution which will only going to increase the hardship for BSF who are already going through excessive deployment in far flung areas. Aerial survillence would certainly enable them to remain updated about every possible hostility on the border at the same time reducing undue patrolling.

    recently, a high ranking official of BSF died near border due to IED explosion by militants hiding in the pak side of the boder. What is alarming is, during the night time and with active fire cover by pak rangers, militants are entering our border area by cutting the fence and planting IEDs in the patrolling path and are triggered by pakistani militants hiding on the pak side exactly at the right time when ever there is an indian patrol party. unsuspecting BSF gaurds and high ranking officials are loosing their lives!!! two such incidents have been reported recently in the press!!!!

    Pakistanis bid to infiltrate in Harami Nala...would have had a nice ring to it.The Rann is notorious for its inhospitable conditions.If Pakistanis are trying to infiltrate militants from there ,then the situation must be desperate in the J&K border,what with the Army running rings around the militants by mounting strict vigilance along the passes.
