BSF shoots down 5 infiltrators at India-Pakistan border in Punjab, arms recovered

The BSF shot dead five heavily armed Pakistani intruders along the India-Pakistan International Border in Punjab early Saturday.

This was the highest number of intruders killed in a single incident along the 3,300-km-long border with Pakistan in more than a decade, officials said.

A BSF spokesperson said troops recovered nine packets containing 9.92kg heroin, an AK-47 rifle, two magazines and 27 rounds, four 9mm Berretta pistols with seven magazines and 109 live rounds, two mobile phones and Rs610 in Pakistani currency after a gunbattle with the intruders near the Dal border post in Tarn Taran district.

The border post is guarded by the 103rd battalion of the Border Security Force.
