Following suspicious attack on a camp of General Reserve Engineer Force (GREF) in Akhnoor sector, Director General BRO Lieutenant General Suresh Sharma has asked the local field Commanders to carry out security audit of all formations of the border organization to tackle any future eventuality.

As per a defence spokesperson, Lt Gen Sharma conducted an extensive 2 day tour to review over all security situations of BRO formations and interacted with various stakeholders.

General Officer visited Jammu based Project Sampark and interacted with Chief Engineer PKH Singh, where he reviewed security situation of GREF detachments in Jammu region and other BRO assets.

 “Lt Gen Suresh Sharma also visited Battal Camp site, where suspected militants raided on the intervening night of January 9 and 10 and killed three civilian labourers,” defense sources said, adding, “General Officer met local Army Formation commanders and stressed on the need for close co-ordination between BRO and Army for overall security of BRO Camps”.
