The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) has received an intelligence report that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) plans to spread HIV among personnel of the Indian army and para-military forces.

A recent intelligence report from Delhi had apprised the SSB of the ISI's design, likely to be implemented with the help of some militant organisations, SSB Deputy Inspector General G S Sarna told reporters here.

Addressing an awareness camp on AIDS yesterday at Madan Jote village bordering Nepal, 30 km from here, Sarna asked SSB personnel to frustrate the ISI plan by practising safe sex.

The SSB, which is engaged in guarding the Nepal and Bhutan borders, has taken steps to check the supply of syringes to its hospitals and health units.

According to Sarna, a little negligence at any stage of testing of the syringes may have serious consequences.
