Indore: A senior Border Security Officer (BSF) officer Monday said adequate measures are being taken to thwart a new strategy which was adopted by terrorists in the last week’s Pulwama bus bombing in which 40 jawans of CRPF were killed. BSF Additional Director General (ADG) A K Sharma also said security forces would give a befitting reply to the anti-national forces.
“The government and security forces are doing their job in the wake of the recent incident (Pulwama terror attack),” ADG Sharma told reporters when asked about the Pulwama terror attack. “Whenever any incident occurs in the country because of anti-national forces present in India or from outside, then the government and security forces are always ready to give a befitting reply.
This time also an appropriate reply will be given,” the ADG said. When asked about a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber ramming a SUV carrying over 100 kg of explosives into the bus of the CRPF jawans in Pulwama, Sharma said a new method was used in that incident. “To deal with it, adequate measures are being taken with a new thinking so that such incident doesn’t occur again,” he added.
