5 infiltrators killed along Indo-Pak border in Punjab: BSF

New Delhi: India’s Border Security Forces (BSF) on Saturday claimed to have killed 5 persons who were trying to enter the Indian side through the Khemkaran border area in Tarn Taran district along the Indo-Pak border in Pujab.

Quoting officials, Delhi-based media organization NDTV reported, that the intruders after being spotted by BSF troops, started firing after they were challenged to stop. This led to a gunfight between the two parties and the BSF troops killed all five of them.

The Punjab frontier of the BSF shared a picture of the slain persons with their faces hidden on twitter and wrote, “Alert troops of 103 Bn #BSF noticed suspicious movement of intruders violating IB. Upon being challenged to stop, intruders fired upon #BSF troops who retaliated in self defence. Resultantly, 05 intruders were shot. Intensive search ops is underway.”

“BSF troops first noticed suspicious activity at the border around midnight, following which they launched a focussed surveillance on the intruders and set up multiple ambushes along the front. The contact was established around 4:45 am, just behind the IB fence,” quoting a BSF official, PTI reported.
