NEW DELHI, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- India has said that it will soon set up smart fence along the 3,323-km-long border with Pakistan in order to prevent infiltration.
"The testing for the smart fencing is in the final stages. Pretty soon it will be done and it will be soon erected at the India-Pakistan border. We will have smart fencing at all our borders in phases but priority would be Indo-Pak frontier," junior Home Minister Kiren Rijiju told the media Friday.
The smart fence, comprising a multi-tier security ring, will raise an immediate alarm to security forces manning the border in case of an infiltration bid.
The India-Pakistan border runs from the Line of Control (LoC), which separates Indian-controlled Kashmir from Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, in the north, to Wagah, which partitioned the north Indian state of Punjab and Pakistan's Punjab Province in the east.
The Zero Point separates the western Indian states of Gujarat and Rajasthan to Sindh province of Pakistan in the south.
India aims at completely sealing the India-Pakistan border by December 2018.
