CHANDIGARH: BSF on Tuesday shot dead a Pakistani intruder along the Indo-Pak International Border in Bamiyal sector of Pathankot in Punjab, the same spot from where terrorists had infiltrated last year to attack an Indian Air Force (IAF) base.

According to sources, the Border Security Force observation post detected suspicious movements of an intruder at about 50 metres from the Simbal border post of the BSF in Bamiyal area at 8:15 AM. The troops challenged the intruder but seeing no response they fired, which killed him on the spot.

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 IAF base.
