Border Security Force (BSF) Director General Nitin Agrawal, is on a two-day visit to the Punjab frontier starting Monday to look through the security situation along the India-Pakistan International Border.
Agrawal was briefed on the operations situation of the border guarding force by Punjab Frontier Inspector General Atul Fulzele before he started his visit. It is worth mentioning that the Punjab frontier is a significant point, as the BSF has been posted at the 553 km-long India-Pakistan International Border to prevent infiltration, arms smuggling, and narcotics smuggling and ensure the cross-border apprehension of people.
Director General Nitin Agrawal will also join Independence Day events during his visit to the Punjab frontier as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Earlier on Saturday, the BSF chief was in the Kutch district in Gujarat, where Union Home Minister Amit Shah laid the foundation stone for a Mooring Place at Koteshwar for the force and inaugurated the newly constructed Chidiyamod-Biarbet Link Road and OP Tower at BP No. 1164 in Harami Nala area in an important step towards improving border security and infrastructure.
The Mooring Place project, with an outlay of Rs 257 crore, was uncovered as proof of the government’s unwavering commitment to strengthening the capabilities of our border guarding forces. The strategically located Mooring Place, spreading over an area of 60 acres, caters as significant infrastructure for BSF Water Vessels in the Creek region.
This state-of-the-art facility will accelerate maritime security operations in the Creek area and remarkably enhance the availability of resources for BSF personnel deployed in the region.
