BSF shoots an armed guy dead after stopping a 'Pakistani infiltration bid'
After three days of drone incursions, Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers stopped a Pakistani infiltration attempt on Tuesday at around 8 a.m. by shooting and killing an armed individual they believed to be a terrorist near the border village of Darya Mansoor, in the Amritsar region.
In the region, which is under the jurisdiction of BSF's border outpost Channa in the Gurdaspur sector, an armed intruder in his late forties breached the international border and was making his way toward the international border barrier.
The BSF soldiers confronted the intruder after spotting him, but he persisted in moving closer to the border barrier, prompting the BSF men to shoot him dead. BSF IG (Punjab Frontier) Asif Jalal said.
