New Delhi, Aug 06: In an obvious reaction, Pakistan criticised the decision by the Indian government to scrap Article 370 and divide Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.
Even as the decision was announced, J&K remained on a high state of alert. The borders especially are being heavily guarded to prevent any misadventure by Pakistan.
The centre has given its nod for setting up 650 combat posts for better intelligence gathering. This would add strength to the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB), the force guarding India’s borders with Nepal and Bhutan.
The International Border with Pakistan will be sealed soon, Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh said while speaking at the passing out parade of Border Security Force assistant commandants at the BSF Academy in Tekanpur, Madhya Pradesh on Saturday.
