Asserting that multi-layered security has been put in place to prevent militants sneaking across the International Border, the BSF today ruled out any infiltration or breach of fencing in Jammu.

"There is no infiltration of militants or breach of border fencing along IB in Jammu frontier -- There was no such truth in reports of infiltration (as projected in media yesterday)," DIG BSF, Virender Singh told reporters here.

There was an alert by a Intelligence Agency about possibility of infiltration of terrorists sitting across the borderline along the IB, but it was mistaken that the militants managed to sneak across the border, which is not so, he said.

"Multi-layers security set up has been put in place along IB particular in sensitive riverine areas -- The infiltration is almost impossible", he said while pointing to the security tiers along the borderline.

Terming the moral of the troops high, he said that our troops have been '24X7 alert' along the borderline to ensure that no infiltration takes places even as there are inputs coming about such attempts.
