New Delhi, Nov 15: The intelligence wing of Border Security Force (BSF) has stated that Chinese troops are training Pakistan Army personnel right across the India-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to reports, the BSF intelligence wing’s report submitted on Friday also said the Chinese troops were seen giving training to Pakistani Armymen in “weapon handling” techniques opposite Rajouri sector of International border.
The BSF reportedly analysed preliminary inputs showing some Pakistan Army units have taken over paramilitary posts of Rangers opposite Sriganganagar sector.
Pakistan has reportedly also set up a handful of new observation towers along Abohar and Gurdaspur sectors in Punjab in the recent past, the report said, adding that intercepts along the border indicate that Pakistan Army and Rangers are planning to deploy snipers and sharp shooters at strategic locations and posts to target Indian soldiers and assets.
The report has further stated that a special squad of Pakistani Army commandos have been placed at select locations along the IB and LoC. This development is reportedly a part of Pakistan’s startegy to carry out raids and Border Action Team (BAT)-sponsored attacks into the Indian territory.
Besides, a large grouping of terrorists has reportedly been detected along Sialkot area in Pakistan which may be planning to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir at a time when Assembly polls are scheduled.
It also said agencies have detected a few launch pads for terrorists to infiltrate along either the International Border (IB) or the Line of Control (LoC).
The BSF report said that along the Indo-Pak border in the Sir Creek area near Gujarat about 25 Indian fishing boats and 155 fishermen had been apprehended by Pakistani maritime authorities in the current fishing season.
