Tunnel unearthed along border
Jammu, July 28: An underground tunnel was unearthed by a villager along the India-Pakistan border in Samba district of Jammu, official sources said Saturday.
"A tunnel constructed towards Pakistan was found by a local villager Baldev Singh while he was digging in his fields last evening at forward Chilyari Post in village Chechwal," a senior police official in Jammu said.
He said the villager informed the Border Security Force personnel deployed along the border about the tunnel following which they rushed to the spot and started investigations.
"A well planned tunnel was found on the border, which reportedly opens on other side of the border at Lambriyal post of Pakistan," he added.
"The BSF men are on the job and during digging they also recovered some oxygen pipes from the tunnel," the officer said, adding that the matter is being investigated.
Officials said that the tunnel has been dug about 20 feet deep from the surface and has more than 4 feet diameter.
“It seems that the tunnel has been dug on the other side as there was no trace of the loose soil on this side of the border”, a police official said.
