Officials said the BSF observation post detected suspicious movements of an intruder around 8:15 am at about 50 metres from the IB fence. They said the troops challenged the intruder but seeing no response they fired which killed him on the spot. The exact location where the incident took place is the Simbal border post of the BSF in Bamiyal area of Pathankot.

Officials said as the area is witnessing heavy fog, the border troops are yet to retrieve the body from near the fence. In January last year, terrorists from across the border had infiltrated in the sector and went on to launch an audacious attack on the strategic Indian Air Force (IAF) base.
