Bhopal, Feb 22 (PTI) The challenges of managing open borders with friendly nations like Nepal and Bhutan require skill sets such as intelligence and perception management rather than just brute force, Sashastra Seema Bal Director General Kumar Rajesh Chandra said on Monday.

He was addressing trainee officers during the passing out parade held at the SSB Academy situated in Chandukhedi near here.

'The challenges of managing open borders with friendly nations like Nepal and Bhutan require different skill sets such as intelligence and perception management rather than just brute force,' he said.
