New Delhi, January 3 : The Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday morning killed an armed Pakistani intruder who was approaching the border security fence in Punjab’s Gurdaspur sector from across the border.
BSF’s troops under Border Outpost Channa of Gurdaspur Sector observed the suspected movement of the intruder around 8.30 am and neutralised him when he kept on moving towards the fence despite being challenged.
“Today at about 0830 hrs, BSF troops of BOP Channa of Gurdaspur Sector observed suspected movement of an armed Pak intruder ahead of B S Fence who was approaching B S Fence from Pak side. The suspected intruder was challenged and neutralised by BSF troops,” said the BSF in a statement.
On Tuesday, during morning hours, alert Border Security Force troops observed suspicious movement of a Pakistani armed miscreant ahead of Border fencing, in the area falling near bordering Village – Dariya Mansoor.
Troops challenged the miscreant, but he did not stop and continued moving ahead. Sensing imminent threat and to stop further misadventure, BSF troops fired upon the miscreant in self-defence, killing him on the spot, read a statement from BSF.
On search, a gun was found near the body of the Pakistani miscreant. Extensive search of the area is in progress.
