Amritsar: The Border Security Force shot dead two Pakistani intruders along the India-Pakistan border on Wednesday when they refused to surrender while crossing over to Indian territory.
DIG BSF JS Oberio said the BSF shot dead two Pakistani intruders when they ignored warnings and kept marching towards BSF troops aggressively.
The incident took place along the India-Pakistan border in Ajnala sector of Amritsar at BOP Shahpur where BSF troops spotted two Pakistani nationals who crossed over to India and refused to surrender.
The border guarding force said it has recovered the bodies of the two. An AK-47 assault rifle, a pistol and over two dozen bullet rounds were recovered from them.
A Border Security Force (BSF) spokesperson said that a Pakistani SIM card, four kgs of heroin and Pakistani currency worth Rs 20,000 were recovered from the two.
"When challenged by BSF troops, infiltrators fired on ambush line with automatic weapons. Taking cover, the fire was appropriately retaliated and infiltrators were neutralised near the border fence," the spokesperson said.
The force foiled the infiltration bid, he added.
"The area has been cordoned off and the search is on at the IB," the spokesperson added.
