Jammu, Jan.17 (ANI): Border Security Force personnel on Sunday gunned down an intruder along the India-Pakistan border while he was trying to infiltrate into Indian territory.
The intruder, identified as a Pakistani national, was killed around 2.45 (local time) in the early morning hours in the vicinity of the Chowni border out post (BOP) Arnia sub-Sector in RS Pura, 43 kilometers off Jammu.
"I saw this man coming from the other side; several other were hiding. He was earlier walking along the zero line; then he started to come towards the Indian territory. I fired in air and asked my superiors who told me to shoot him. I fired one shot, he fell down. Later I fired another shot in which he was killed," said Vijay Kumar Yadav, a BSF personnel.
This is sixth infiltration bid during the 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-metre (yard) high barbed wire security-fence along most of the 742 kilometers (460-miles) long Line of Control (LoC). (ANI)
