After months, BSF constable S Bohra was going to his home as his leave was approved. However, then Pakistani terrorists attacked an Army camp in Uri, which left 18 Indian Army soldiers martyred.
Following the attacks, the tensions between nuclear armed neighbours New Delhi and Islamabad hit a boiling point. This also led the BSF to alert its soldiers along the international border.

Babita Khader from Navalgarh, Jhunjhunu; Anita Meena from Dausa; Seema Angle from Khandwa, MP, have been in the BSF for the last four year. And ever since they joined this was for the first time that tensions have heightened along the border.
Likewise, people living in areas close to border in Faruwal village in Punjab’s Ferozpur, are aware of Uri attacks. But they say that they do not fear the tensions along the border as they have seen two wars between the two neighbours.
