BSF (Border Security Force)
The need of Boarder security force was first felt in 1965, When Pakistan attacked Sardar Post, Chhar Bet and Baria Bet on 9th of April.
Till that time State Armed Police Battalion used to secure the Borders of India but they get exposed when a attack of this caliber happened. A special border patrolling and securing force is felt to required.As a result BSF was established on 1 Dec. 1965.
It is a Paramilitary force and its main motive is to secure the borders of India.
In peace time, it works to establish the sense of security among the areas , close to boarder.
