The Indian government has sanctioned as many as 1,185 border outposts (BOPs) along the India-Bangladesh border.
Indian Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said a border protection grid (BPG) had already been set up along the India-Bangladesh and India-Pakistan border, reports Indian daily The Economic Times.
The border protection grid will continuously monitor and evaluate threats along the border.
The BPG will observe and analyze patterns and formulate appropriate response.
It will have five layers – elements before the border fence, physical border infrastructure, border fence, intelligence grid, and police.
