NEW DELHI: Border Security Force (BSF) thwarted an attempt by Pakistani narco-terrorists to push arms and ammunition into India on Saturday . According to an official release, a BSF patrolling party deployed in the Abohar sector of Amritsar recovered three AK-47 rifles, six magazines, 91 rounds of 7.62 mm, two M-16 rifles, four magazines, 57 rounds of 5.56 mm, two China-made pistols, four pistol magazines and 20 rounds of 7.63 mm.
BSF sources said the arms cache and ammunition was found 10 metres inside Indian territory in a field of Dona Mattar village in Ferozpur district. They said the consignment could have been dropped by Pakistani smugglers and was to be retrieved by their Indian counterparts. “This is a huge consignment which can’t be concealed and was probably brought from across the border fence in a tractor,” said a source.
