The Border Security Force (BSF) neutralised a Pakistani intruder near the India-Pakistan border in Jammu & Kashmir’s Samba area in the early hours of June 1.
The BSF troops deployed in the Jammu sector neutralised the intruder as he kept advancing towards border fencing despite warnings from the personnel. “In the early hours of June 1, 2023, the alert BSF troops noticed a suspicious movement of a person who crossed IB from the Pakistan side in the Samba area,” the BSF said in a statement.
He was challenged by the troops but the intruder kept advancing towards border fencing, said the BSF, which is mandated to guard the 3,323 km India-Pakistan border.
“The troops fired on him and shot him dead. Further details are being ascertained,” the BSF added.
Foiling an infiltration bid, Indian Army apprehended three terrorists near the India-Pakistan border in Poonch on May 31.
According to an official statement, Army launched a joint operation with Jammu & Kashmir Police on the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch sector on the intervening night of May 30-31 and intercepted 3-4 terrorists while they were attempting to cross the fence taking advantage of bad weather and heavy rain. “After tracking the movement at about 1.30 hours, a well-sited Indian Army ambush on challenging them was fired upon, and in the retaliatory firefight, some terrorists have been hit,” the statement said.
The security forces then cordoned off the area, and a search operation was launched.
“Blood trails have been found. Three terrorists with some weapons and war-like stores, including one IED (improvised explosive device) and Narco, have been apprehended. One Indian Army soldier was injured in the ensuing firing and has been evacuated,” the statement further mentioned.
Army recovered 10 kg IED from the terrorists.
