Jaisalmer: Fog is dangerous, foggy nights deadly. Evil ‘spirits’ reportedly get active on foggy nights. The protectors want to ensure these evil spirits are reigned in, and don’t hurt innocent people. If the danger is not averted on time, the result can be catastrophic.
Well, the evil spirits in this case are the Pakistan-bred terrorists, and the protector here is the Border Security Force (BSF). BSF on Sunday launched operation ‘Sard Hawa’ at the western international border of Rajasthan, under which vigil will be beefed-up to check the instances of infiltration due to the dense fog in the area. The operation will continue till 28 January.
“The purpose of the operation is to keep a hawk’s eye on the international border, where vigil has been beefed-up and officers have also been asked to be part of operation to motivate jawans,” Deputy Inspector General (BSF), Ravi Gandhi said.
He said the jawans will patrol with advanced weapons in the police station areas near to the border. “We have increased the deployment of jawans on the border to maintain a strict vigil, as chances of infiltration rises due to dense fog cover on the international border,” he added.
