India has fortified border along Pakistan with state of the art technology: Indian Defence Minister

Indian Defence minister said the Army has constructed an anti-infiltration obstacle system (AIOS) along the Line of Control and International Border in Jammu and Kashmir, under its operational control.

Radars, sensors and thermal imagers along with surveillance have been incorporated on this fence to detect and intercept infiltration by terrorists.

The AIOS is further strengthened by deployment of troops and construction of defence works based on threat perception for an effective multi-tiered counter-infiltration grid.

"Fortification of border is a continuous process. Anti- infiltration steps like obstacle systems, technical gadgets have been installed by the Army and enough steps have been taken to check infiltration," he said.

Jaitely said the government regularly reviews the threat perception to secure the borders and protect national interests.

"Appropriate measures are taken from time-to-time to maintain and upgrade the country's defence preparedness along the border to safeguard the sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of India," the Minister said.

Further, the areas along the borders are kept under surveillance by regular patrolling by troops and other aerial, optronic and electronic means.
