China is considered one of the primary sources of infiltrators in India but the Indian government has now cleared up the air on this matter.
Indian government has no inputs of infiltration on the Indo-Nepal and on the Indo-Bhutan border as they are visa free and friendly borders.
But what would come as a sigh of relief is that the government said that there is “no case of infiltration reported along Indo-China border.”
This was stated by the Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju in a written reply to question by Lal Sinh Vadodia in the Rajya Sabha today.
The number of cases of infiltration along Indo-Bangladesh, Indo-Pakistan and Indo-Myanmar borders during the years 2015 and 2016 is as follows:
Rijiju also said that the government has adopted a multipronged approach for security arrangements at the borders to curb smuggling and infiltration. The arrangements include deployment of Border Guarding Force (BGF), construction of border fence, construction of border roads, installation of floodlights, construction of Border Out Posts (BOPs), introduction of Hi-tech surveillance equipments, providing advanced weapons and Specialized Vehicles to Security Forces, action based on intelligence inputs etc.
