Tarn Taran: The Border Security Force (BSF) shot dead five intruders trying to sneak into Indian territory from Pakistan near Dall village of Bhikhiwind sub division in Punjab’s Tarn Taran district on Saturday morning.
A senior BSF official said that an AK assault rifle and a rucksack was recovered from one of the bodies. “The search operation is underway. It is yet to be ascertained if those shot down are Pakistanis. The motive of the accused will be clear once the operation ends.”
Around 5am, BSF personnel noticed suspicious movement across the border fence in Pakistan near the Dall border out post (BoP). Sources said two men were seen trying to sneak into Indian territory. Despite being challenged, the duo kept moving ahead, prompting the BSF to open fire.
After the firing, the officials said, a search was launched and five bodies were recovered.
