''From the site of infiltration two UBGL grenades, two AK rifle magazines, set of hand gloves and many empty cases were recovered,'' official sources told UNI and added that the entire area was cordoned off and searches for infiltrators are in progress.

''During searches seven more AK rifle magazines and a hand glove was recovered, which might have been used by the militants to escape from electric shock of wires while cutting it,'' an official said.

Meanwhile, Mr Chourasiya, Additional Superintendent of Police (Rural) said a group of ultras cut the fencing Cobra wire, barbed wire as well as the concertina wire between pillar No 733 and 734 under the jurisdiction of Kanachak Police Station, some 20-kms from here.

''The Pakistan troops opened heavy firing on the BSF deployed on the International border, to give cover to the infiltrators,'' Mr Chourasiya said asserting, ''the infiltrators had also fired on the jawans guarding the border and disappeared in the Indian side taking advantage of the dark.''
