A day after jawan killed, BSF destroys 2 Pak posts

Jammu: The BSF troops Thursday foiled an infiltration bid and killed an intruder along the International Border (IB) in Jammu district.

Troops observed movement of people along the IB near Nikowal Border Out Post (BoP) in Arnia sector around 0545 hours, IG BSF, Jammu frontier, Ram Awtar told PTI.

They opened fire resulting in the death of one intruder, he said adding, the deceased was in his thirties.

The other intruders managed to escape, he said.

The force also destroyed two Pakistani posts in retaliation to the killing of its jawan in unprovoked firing.

Two Pakistani mortar positions were 'located, targeted and destroyed by BSF troopers. The coordinated precision fire of BSF troopers silenced Pakistani guns,' a BSF spokesman said.
