An official who did not wish to be named told OneIndia that while it is clear that the intruders are trying to take advantage of the foggy conditions, the force continues to remain on very high alert and have been able successfully foil both smuggling and intrusion bids.
Following this, BSF deputy inspector general, Bhupinder Singh said that the force shot down two Pakistani armed intruders who were carrying AK-56 rifles, magnum rifles, an Olympia marked pistol and ammunition.
