India lodged a “strong protest” with Pakistan over a secret tunnel recently discovered along the international border of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Indian Kashmir, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported on Tuesday.
The report quoted a senior Border Security Force official who confirmed that a protest has been lodged with Pakistani Rangers, and a protest note with evidence was also handed over to Pakistani authorities at a flag meeting in the Jammu district.
Last week, a PTI report had claimed that a 400-metre long tunnel was discovered by authorities along the Samba district.
Senior Superintendent of Police in Samba Israr Hussain had said that the tunnel, with a height and width of three feet, was running between Indian Kashmir’s Chillayari border outpost and Azad Kashmir’s Lambriyal border outpost.
The police official had said a local villager, Baldev Singh, working in the fields had observed the cave in and reported the matter to the BSF on finding the plastic pipe on Friday evening.
