Internal matter, we are keeping an eye: India’s border force on Taliban takeover

BSF Director General SS Deswal on Monday said they are keeping a close watch on the situation in Afghanistan and are fully ready for all possible consequences.

He, however, described the developments in Afghanistan as that country’s internal matter.

“What is happening in the neighbouring country is its internal matter, but we are keeping a close watch on the situation,” he told reporters at the Octerio Border Out Post in the R S Pura sector.

“We are ready for all possible consequences,” he added.

Replying to another question on infiltration and the increased use of drones from across the border to ferry weapons, the BSF DG said as a responsible country, India is acting in accordance with the ceasefire agreement with Pakistan.

“We have not violated the ceasefire,” he added.

Referring to the use of drones, Deswal said security forces have thwarted most of the attempts to airdrop and smuggle narcotics and weapons.

“The drone threat is a challenge and we are handling it. In the coming days, technologically, we will be dealing with the issue more efficiently. Systems are being put in place,” he said.3hTMTabish Malik
