'Pak Army building new bunkers along border'

New Delhi: The Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday raised alarm at the Pakistan Army’s move to build more bunkers along the border with India.
A top BSF official said that the Pakistani Army had stepped up building bunkers along the border in the recent past, especially after last November’s Mumbai terror attacks.
According to Special DG BSF UK Bansal, apart from the concrete bunkers Pakistan was also constructing observation towers.

He, however, added that there was no cause of concern and that India was taking measures to neutralise Pakistan’s actions.
The latest news clearly points to a new aggressive line being adopted by Pakistan along its border with India, especially in view of its continued reluctance to act against the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks.
The revelation comes at a time when the infiltration activity along the border is at its peak due to favourable weather conditions prevalent in summer.
The disclosure further assumes significance in the wake of reports that Jammu and Kashmir’s major power project Baglihar Dam is on the radar of the Lashkar-e-Toiba, as was claimed by the two alleged LeT militants who were recently caught from the forests of Shamsabari near the Line of Control in North Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
