The Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday announced that the India-Pakistan border will be completely sealed by December 2018.
The government plans to seal the international border with Pakistan, spread over 2,300 km.
Singh was in Jaisalmer to chair a meet of chief ministers and home ministers of the four border states- Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
An Israel-type highly secured fencing may come up along the Indo-Pak border to check infiltration from across the border as the government is exploring the possibility of installing such a barrier in the sensitive frontiers of Punjab and Jammu.
The Friday meeting deliberated on measures to manage the Indo-Pak border where there is a spurt in tension ever since the September 18 Uri attack in Kashmir and last week’s surgical strikes across the LoC.
