BSF Turns To Nets, Cow Bells For Checking Intrusion


Jaisalmer In order to curb cross-border infiltration, the BSF has decided to install tools like cow bells and nets along border areas in the district.

“The tools, including domestic equipment like cow bells, ‘ponchu’ nets and trip layers, have been placed along the border areas in the district,” Deputy Inspector General BSF, Ravi Gandhi, said.

The cow bells have been attached to fencing at the international border. If some intruder tries to cross it, the bells would generate a ringing sound, thereby alerting the BSF men, the DIG said.

He said that a trip layer is a cracker that bursts and emits light when the wire is touched, thus alerting the force about potential intrusions.

‘Ponchu’ net, he said, traps the leg of the intruder making it difficult for him to walk.
