PESHAWAR: Integrated Border Management System (IBMS) on Tuesday has been installed at Pak-Afghan Torkham border to prevent entry of terrorists in Pakistan, DawnNews reported.

The new IBMS was installed at 121 entry and exit points including Torkham border and the system was linked with Interpol, Passport, National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

The system will help Pakistan to prevent the entry of terrorists in the country.

The IBMS will deter people from travelling on stolen passports and will also empower the authorities to take action against foreigners whose visas have expired.

Earlier, the modern Integrated Border Management System was also installed at Bacha Khan International Airport.

The experts trained the staff to install the system at Pak-Afghan Torkham border.

Why is it not done on the eastern border too? Oh wait - because they are known as freedom fighters on that side of the coast.

I thought India had built a physical fence along the border - am I mistaken?

A great joke with the people of Pakistan, people who have travelled and visited the area know that these border crossing points are just used by 1 out of 100 travelling between Pak and afghanistan. Need not to mentioned that one need to pay only Rs 300 to FC soldier to let one pass through. If someone does not believe me they should visit the border or ask a friend in the area to make the video to ascertain the facts.

You are absolutely right. They really are striving to get freedom based on their right of self-determination as per UN resolution which was moved by Prime Minister of India Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru.

Should also be installed on the eastern border with India. All of Pakistan's entry points need to be secured. Keep up the good work guys!
