NEW DELHI: A pilot project for installing radars, sensors and cameras has been launched along the border with Pakistan and Bangladesh to check incidents of infiltration, Lok Sabha was informed today.

Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said the government has decided to deploy technological solutions in the form of integration of radars, sensors, cameras, communication networks and command and control solutions in various difficult terrains where fencing could not be installed.

"Initially, it has been decided to launch pilot study in Punjab, Gujarat (Sir Creek), South Bengal, Tripura and Jammu regions. An amount of Rs 10 crore has been sanctioned for Jammu region on Indo-Pak border," he said in a written reply.

There have been several instances in recent past when terrorists from Pakistan breached the border and carried out terror attacks, including the January 2 strike on Pathankot airbase.
