JAMMU, Jan 4: The Border Security Force (BSF) Thursday claimed to have foiled an infiltration attempt by killing an intruder along the International Border in Jammu district and destroyed two Pak posts on the other side of border.
A BSF official said, “Alert troops noticed suspicious movement of two to three persons near the Nikowal Border Out Post (BOP) in Arnia sector around 5.45 AM. The intruders were challenged and fired at, resulting in the death of an infiltrator. Other infiltrators managed to escape back to Pakistan." The intruder was in his thirties, he said.
In the meanwhile, the BSF spokesperson also claimed to have destroyed two Pakistani posts in retaliation to the killing of its jawan in unprovoked firing.
“Two Pakistani mortar positions were located, targetted and destroyed by BSF troopers yesterday night only. The coordinated precision fire of BSF troopers silenced Pakistani guns,” a BSF spokesman said.
Yesterday, a BSF jawan was killed in unprovoked firing by Pakistan, the first this year, in Samba sector of Jammu and the force had since then launched retaliatory fire.
