New Delhi: A committee appointed by the Union Home Ministry to address vulnerabilities along the India-Pakistan border has proposed the use of scientific technology such as laser fencing along with increased vigil along riverine border areas, sources revealed Monday.
The committee is also said to have given separate recommendations for four states which touch the international border with Pakistan.
At the same time it also reportedly expressed displeasure over not installing laser walls in many infiltration-prone areas. These areas are vulnerable due to treacherous and marshy terrain.
The committee was set up three months after the terror attack on Pathankot IAF base in January to study all types of gaps in fencing and other vulnerabilities along the border.
The terrorists had entered the strategic air base at Pathankot on the intervening night of January one-two this year and mounted a brazen assault. In the fierce encounter that had ensued, seven security personnel besides four terrorists were killed.
