A senior BSF official on Thursday said an intruder killed along the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district might have been sent to carry out reconnaissance of the area and test the alertness of troops for a potential infiltration attempt.


Border Security Force (BSF) troops thwarted an infiltration bid on Wednesday night at Samba’s Regal post along the IB and killed an intruder, officials said. The body of the intruder was retrieved from the spot on Thursday.

“The troops noticed movement from across the border around 8:15 pm on Wednesday. It was closely monitored. The intruder first approached the border and then crossed the International Border. Despite being challenged by the troops, he continued to advance aggressively. Even after being challenged twice more, the intruder did not halt, leading to the troops firing at him,” BSF Inspector General (IG) D K Boora told reporters during his visit to a forward post here.
