BSF Inspector General, Frontier, AK Tomar, informed that the narcotic and ammunition was recovered in the area of border out post Khanpur in Abohar sector.

The BSF had also recovered 500 gram opium, 42 rounds of ammunition, 2 Nokia mobile phones and 2 Pak SIM cards said Tomar.

Giving details, Tomar informed that on the intervening night of March 31 and April 1, BSF troops deployed in the area of Khanpur border out post spotted suspicious movement near border security fence following which they challenged the intruders who deliberately ignored them.

“BSF troops challenged the suspects but they did not pay any heed and continued with their aggressive posture which forced our Jawan to fire on them in self defence and to prevent smuggling attempt” said Tomar. But the Pakistan smugglers managed to escape taking advantage of darkness.

During search of the area the narcotics and ammunition was recovered. A day earlier BSF troops had foiled a smuggling attempt near Daoke village in Amritsar sector.  Deputy Inspector General, BSF, Amritsar sector MF Farooqui informed that BSF troops had to open fire on seeing around 6 to 7 Pakistan smugglers entering the Indian territory and were trying to insert the PVC pipe across the border security fence to smuggle packets of heroin.
