    Bolded part, even if we have put sophisticated detection systems and heavily mined, even common people from across the border and from here visit the other side to meet the relatives. There is no fool proof system. Even with highly sophisticated systems, Mexicans are crossing US border.

    As I mentioned earlier, I am not belittling the action done by IA, but saying its one of its kind and no other country done any thing like this is gross exaggerating.

    No bro, there have been only a handful of intrusions from civilian populace across LoC over a decade. And stuff like this makes headline news.

    Look at the dates:

    And this is merely crossing the first fence, not the actual mined areas which is quite a distance away from the fencing. The boys were all caught by border patrols.

    There are three fences.

    So no, the LoC isn't even remotely equal to the Mexican border with the US. The Americans have spent peanuts compared to us in fencing the LoC. The only way to cross the LoC is using mortar fire to keep the patrols hidden, infiltrators cross the fence in darkness and then take days to trek across the mountains, avoiding patrols. And since the last 2 years, all attempts at infiltration have failed. So forget about families happily crossing the LoC. I don't even know where you got that from.

    I think you are confused between infiltration and govt sponsored bus services.

    LoC still remains one of the most heavily mined regions in the world.
