Amritsar, December 17
Two armed intruders from Pakistan were shot dead by BSF troops close to Rajatal border outpost near Amritsar in the wee hours today.
Also, two attempts of heroin smuggling from across the border were foiled during the same period.
BSF DIG Bhupinder Singh said the intruders were seen crawling near the border fence during the wee hours when visibility was very poor due to fog. “Despite being warned, they didn’t stop. The troops of 71 Battalion fired in self-defence, killing the two,” the DIG said. — TNS
