Border posts of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) along the India-China frontier from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh will have an additional team of intelligence officers for surveillance and information gathering.
A highly placed source said the central government has approved a proposal for establishing the set-up that will be known as the Border Intelligence Post (BIP). The move bears significance in view of the increased Chinese activities along the border and transgressions by China’s People’s Liberation Army.
Each of the BIPs will be manned by four-five officials of the Intelligence Bureau and protected by ITBP personnel, the source said.
The source, however, refused to disclose the amount sanctioned by the central government for the project citing its sensitive nature.
