Alert Border Security Force (BSF) personnel shot dead a Pakistani intruder along the international border in Jammu’s Samba sector on Monday.
A BSF spokesperson said, “Around 9.45am, vigilant BSF troops observed a Pakistani intruder heading towards the security fence near Chak Faquira border outpost in Samba sector. Despite repeated warnings, he kept moving towards the fence and was fired upon by the troops.”
The spokesperson added that the intruder’s body was later recovered by BSF from the fenced area, some 40m inside the Indian territory. A Pakistani intruder was killed in the same area on November 23, 2020, and a tunnel was also detected nearby recently.
