The Border Security Force (BSF) said on Tuesday that it had neutralized two Pakistani intruders near the International Border in Rajasthan and seized three packets of suspected contraband (heroin) from their possession.
According to a BSF statement, these intruders were shot by BSF personnel assigned to the 13 Battalion while patrolling near the border about 10 kilometers north of Munabao village in Rajasthan on Monday night.
A statement of the BSF reads “”On May 1, 2023, a patrol party of 13 Bn BSF shot two Pak intruders and recovered three packets of suspected contraband item from their possession, close to border about 10 kms north of Munabao.”
At around 9 p.m. on Monday, border guards on patrol noticed some suspicious movement near the border security fence on the international border.
“The operational party immediately took their positions and challenged the intruders but they did not pay any heed and moved close to the border security fence to negotiate it,” said the BSF, which is mandated to guard the 3,323 km India-Pakistan border.
According to the force, the BSF party fired on the intruders in self-defense and to prevent them from crossing the fence.
“After some time, the BSF party searched the area and recovered two dead bodies of Pakistani intruders as well as three packets of suspected drugs/heroin from their possession.”
