''On noticing a movement of armed militants from across the border near Durga Border Outpost in Makwar area last night, the BSF jawans opened fire, which was retaliated, triggering a cross firing in which two jawans sustained injuries,'' sources told sources.

However, the infiltration bid was foiled by the alert troops after nearly two and a half hours continue firing, sources added.
