The Border Security Force (BSF) troops foiled two separate infiltration bids by Pakistani intruders along the international border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Arnia sector. In the process, one was shot dead and another was arrested, a spokesperson for the border guarding force said.
Giving details, he said the BSF troops opened fire on a Pakistani intruder when he was noticed aggressively approaching the border fence in the Arnia sector of Jammu.
“He was challenged to stop but he did not pay any heed. Finding no other alternative, the troops fired and killed him,” the spokesperson said.
In another incident, the spokesperson said troops apprehended a Pakistani intruder as he approached the fencing after crossing the IB in the Ramgarh sector.
“He was brought inside the Indian side of the fence after opening the gate. Nothing incriminating has been found in his possession so far,” the spokesperson said.
He said the entire area in both sectors is being thoroughly searched.
