The Border Security Force (BSF) on Wednesday detected a tunnel beneath the International Border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

The tunnel constructed from across the border to facilitate infiltration of terrorists was detected by BSF troops in Bobiyaan village during an operation this morning, the officials said.

Senior BSF and police officers have rushed to the spot.

"The tunnel detected along IB in Hiranagar sector of Kathua is approx 150 meters long, proper engineering effort has gone into the construction of this tunnel. This is a deliberate effort of Pak to push in terrorists into India. It seems that it hasn't been used recently," said IG BSF NS Jamwal.
