New Delhi: The defence ministry has increased surveillance at the borders with the help of lights made with the help of indigenous technology by a Kanpur firm.
These lights will help to keep a check on the enemy movement. These lights are on the outskirts and cover a radius of up to one kilometre. In this radar of one kilometer, movements of enemy can be seen clearly.
During the demo, Mahendra Awasthi, MD, Carpet Lights Company, said, “These searchlights rotate continuously for 360 degrees.”
On the borders of Punjab, Gujarat, Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, four thousand lights have been supplied.
Mahendra Awasthi added that he has been working to make such lights for 25 years.
“When the Galwan Valley incident happened, that time we got the order for lights for the India-China Border,” Awasthi said.
In the Galwan Valley clash on June 15, 2020, twenty Indian Army men and unspecified number of Chinese troops died. The major reason for their deaths was pitch-black darkness in the area. The forces had to face difficulty during the incident.
