Centre approves 5-Layer Security Lock at Pakistan Border
The Centre has approved an ambitious five-layer security plan to stop infiltration on the 2,900-km Western border with Pakistan. The new initiative would help India prevent Pathankot type terror attacks. The new plan is known as the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System’ (CIBMS) for 24x7x365 surveillance of the border through technology.
CCTV cameras, thermal image and night-vision devices, battlefield surveillance radar, underground monitoring sensors and laser barriers will be placed along the border in order to track the movement from the other side.
The laser barriers would cover 130 unfenced sections including riverine and mountain terrain from Jammu & Kashmir to Gujarat.
