Srinagar- Over 50 km of the three-tier border fencing and flood-lighting have been damaged by the recent floods along the line of control (LoC) and international border (IB) between Pakistan and India.

“As many as 20 to 25 km of border fencing has been damaged in various patches along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir regions during floods,” a senior Indian army officer told.

As security forces battle floods to reach out to people for rescue and relief, the BSF and the army are also racing against time to repair the damage along LoC and IB. Indian army engineers are working to complete the task in the shortest possible time.
