BSF foils intrusion bid, kills Pak intruder

Chandigarh, December 3
BSF has foiled a cross-border intrusion bid after it shot dead a Pakistani intruder at Border Out Post Dhindha in Gurdaspur sector of Punjab.
“BSF troops of Border Out Post Dhindha Sector Gurdaspur observed suspicious movement of a Pakistani intruder who crossed the International Border and came inside the Indian territory. BSF troops challenged him to stop but the intruder continued with his aggressive posture. Hence, BSF troops opened fire in self-defence and killed him,” a BSF official said.
This incident took place at around 8 PM last night.
Due to the enhanced vigil of BSF troops, the attempt of anti-national elements has been thwarted, the official said.
Keeping in view the vulnerability of border due to ongoing cultivation/tilling season and heightened activities of smugglers, Inspector General, BSF (Punjab Frontier), Anil Paliwal has issued operational guidelines to all the sectors under Punjab Frontier for further strengthening the border domination to effectively check the menace of narcotics smuggling and activities of anti-national elements on Punjab border with Pakistan, he said. The official  said directions were also issued to field commanders to maintain extra vigil on the border to thwart the attempts of smugglers and anti-national elements.
He said tactical operations are being mounted to foil the attempts of smugglers and intruders during this foggy season.
