Director General of Police (DGP) Dilbag Singh Tuesday visited forward areas along the International Border (IB) in Samba district to review the security arrangements ahead of the rainy season, an official said.
Singh, who was accompanied Inspector General of BSF, Jammu N S Jamwal and senior officers of the civil administration, also rewarded the paramilitary BSF team “who shot down a Pakistani drone, loaded with a sophisticated rifle and seven grenades, in Kathua district last week”.
They visited border areas including the Basantar riverbed to review the close coordination between BSF, Police and other civil agencies in view of the rainy season, a spokesperson of the force said.
The group also supervised the flood protection works on the Basantar riverbed.
Singh emphasised on ensuring real-time, close coordination between the border guarding forces, civil agencies and local Police to smoothly address the problems and concerns of the civilians.
Meanwhile, Jamwal briefed the DGP about the BSF’s domination in the Basantar riverbed area and Singh praised the hardwork put in by the forces personnel to guard a difficult border, the spokesperson said. PTI
