Srinagar, Mar. 28 (ANI): Border Security Force (BSF) personnel on Sunday gunned down a Pakistani intruder who was trying to infiltrate into Indian territory in the vicinity of the Nanga border out post (BOP) in Samba, 60 kilometers off Jammu.

"I received a call from the company Cdr of 72 Battalion BSF from Nanga BOP about some movement and firing on Border and he informed me that perhaps there is a causality. When we reached on the spot in the morning, we recovered a dead body and a cutter near the fence," said SHO Ramgarh Romesh Bawa

This is the 20th infiltration bid since January 2010 along the Indo-Pak border in Jammu.

The infiltration bids have become recurring events despite a ceasefire between the two armies and a three-meter high barbed wire security-fence along most of the 742 kilometers long Line of Control (LoC).
