Ahmedabad, Jun 12 (PTI) Director General of the Border Security Force S S Deswal is on a two-day visit to Gujarat’s Kutch district to review the security scenario along the international border, an official said on Friday.
This is Deswal’s first visit to Kutch, which shares a border with Pakistan, after assuming the charge as BSF DG this March, a release here stated.
Following his arrival in Bhuj on Thursday, the BSF chief chaired a high-level meeting with senior officials, including BSF inspector general G S Malik, Kutch-West superintendent of police Saurabh Tolumbia and officials of Bhuj Army station.
