The Border Security Force (BSF) is planning to install laser technology along the India-Bangladesh border fence in Tripura to improve checking of unlawful activities, officials disclosed on Monday.
In spite of having a wire fencing over a vast area of the borderline, there has been an increase in the number of cross-border crimes, infiltration and smuggling activities.
Due to the difficulties of border management faced by BSF jawans, they have proposed to use laser technology to improve their efficiency of work.
According to reports, the laser shield technology has an innovative touch sensitive system which raises an alarm if anyone tries to use the fence in any part of the border.
The report stated a BSF official as saying that the laser technology will help the BSF to keep a strict check on the border even during bad weather.
Appreciating the border management efforts of the central government, Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that his government has been giving highest priority to fencing along the India- Bangladesh border of the state.
