Amritsar: Security at the Integrated Check Post at India-Pakistan border near here has been enhanced following a threat issued by Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Taliban to blow up the ICP on Pakistan side.

On the Indian side, as a precautionary measure, BSF has already enhanced security around the ICP, said BSF IG Aditya Mishra.

Mishra said there was nothing to worry about the situation since the threat call was issued on the Pakistan side to Pakistan officials’ posted the ICP and it has nothing to do anything with the Indian side.

Mishra said that due to ongoing harvesting season on Indian side, BSF patrolling has been enhanced to prevent infiltration and smuggling of narcotics, arms and fake currency from Pakistani side at night as Pakistani smugglers may take advantage of fully-grown standing crops in the agriculture field along the border.

Senior Superintendent of Police, Amritsar (Rural), Prithpal Singh Virk said although reports of threat were to the Pakistan side of ICP, the same on the Indian side couldn’t be ruled out as infiltration could also be expected in such circumstances from Pakistani side.
