A week ago BSF found a tunnel leading to India from Pakistan in the Sambha district of Jammu and Kashmir
The tunnel is 2.5 feet wide and about that deep, it was dug to help terrorist infiltrate into India.
The tunnel was not yet completed and was fortunately detected well in advance, before it could reach the fence.
The tunnel was being dug right under the border fence and it was detected during an exercise by the BSF officers across the 200 km of the International Border.
