New Delhi: The Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday morning neutralized an armed Pakistani infiltrator who was approaching the border security fence from across the border in Punjab’s Gurdaspur sector.
BSF personnel under border outpost Channa of Gurdaspur sector spotted the suspicious movement of the intruder around 8.30 am and neutralized him as he moved towards the fence despite the challenge. “Today at around 0830 hours, BSF personnel of BOP Channa of Gurdaspur sector observed suspicious movement of an armed Pak infiltrator nearing the BS fence from the Pak side. The suspected intruder was challenged and neutralized by BSF personnel,” the BSF said in a statement.
On Tuesday, in the morning, alert Border Security Force personnel spotted suspicious movement of a Pakistani armed miscreant along the border fence in an area near the border village – Dariya Mansoor.
The army challenged the rascal, but he did not stop and continued to advance. Realizing the imminent danger and to prevent further misadventure, the BSF personnel opened fire on the miscreant in self-defence, killing him on the spot, a BSF statement read.
During the search, a gun was found near the dead body of the Pakistani miscreant. An extensive search is underway in the area.
The BSF, which guards the 7,419 km Indo-Pak border, nabbed 22 Pakistani fishermen and seized 79 fishing boats in 2022 in the extremely remote, swampy and difficult terrain of creeks and Harami Nalla in Gujarat’s Bhuj sector.
A Pakistani infiltrator was neutralized a day after the BSF seized another Pakistani drone along with a consignment of nearly 1 kg of heroin near the International Border (IB) in Punjab’s Gurdaspur sector.
