Jammu: With the water level in Chenab river at its peak, the Water Wing of Border Security Force (BSF) is patrolling the river along International Border (IB) to prevent infiltration into the country.
Patrolling parties of the BSF secure the border day and night to prevent infiltration as the water level in the river rises during rainfall, an official said.
"The flow of water increases during the rainy season. We ensure that no one infiltrates into our country. We have been given life jackets for our safety," a BSF personnel told ANI.
"BSF is always alert at every place. We do day-night patrolling. It is difficult but it is our duty. We have to assure the nation that we are here and there is no threat," another personnel said.
A boat driver of the BSF patrolling party said that teams have been given special training to tackle every challenge.
"I don't see anything as challenging when it comes to the nation. For us, the country is topmost priority," he said.
