Indian border guards have put its personnel on high alert and cancelled leaves of its troops in the wake of heightened security situation along the border with Pakistan, a top official said Monday.

"Commandants downwards every officer is there on the border -- night and day. Intensive patrolling is taking place. Total mobilization has been done and leaves cancelled. We are fully alert and everything is properly supervised," India's Border Security Force (BSF) chief Raman Srivastava told the media in the national capital.

He added, "We have to be alert. Anything may happen anytime. We are just taking our precautions. It is continuous alert. They ( militants across the border) are trying (to infiltrate)."

The BSF guards the border with Pakistan along with Indian Army.
