24 Hours CCTV, Electric Fensing, Night Vision Devices for CRPF Camps in Kashmir

At least six of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camps in Kashmir have been installed with the electric fence along the boundary wall of its camps, including the Group Centre in Lethpora, Pulwama district. This has been done to prevent the terrorists from crossing the boundary and deal with deadly terrorist attacks.

The electric fence will be a barrier which uses electric shocks to hinder intruders from crossing the boundary, especially during the night. The Border Security Force (BSF), which recently saw Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurate two pilot projects of the smart fence at Jammu border, has also used electric fence for years to ward off intruders.

“The voltage of the shock may have effects ranging from extreme physical discomfort or even death,” said a source in the CRPF. Alarm bells have also been installed that will set off in case of any inattentive entry.

Night Vision Devices (NVDs), Closed-circuit television (CCTV) and airborne drones are also provided to CRPF officers in various locations. Proper lighting around the campus, with backup inverters, have been placed to assure vision at all times, especially during the nights.

The move to strengthen campus security was initiated by the largest paramilitary force after the deadly New Year’s Eve attack by three heavily armed Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists on Lethpora camp, in which five CRPF men lost their lives.

After carrying a massive internal review in the Lethpora camp and Recruit Training Centre (RTC) in Humahuma that included analysis of the camps, both have undergone a massive makeover. While Lethpora camp work was delayed due to severe winter month and legal quarrels. The work was facilitated quickly after the fidayeen attack, the purpose was to strengthen its vast campus so that there are no faults in security.

“It is not possible to man every inch of the vast campus. This is where technology will aid the CRPF,” a top officer said.
