Gurdaspur: the Border Security Force (BSF) troops recovered 55kg heroin and two revolvers on the Indo-Pak border near Kalanaur in Gurdaspur district.
Deputy superintendent of police (DSP-headquarters) Gurbans Singh Bains
said that the
night-domination patrol of the BSF troops noticed movement of three
Pakistani smugglers across the fence on the Pakistani side at about 6.30
“The troops challenged the Pak smugglers who didn’t pay any heed to the warnings and continued with their aggressive posture. To stop their further misadventure, the BSF troops fired at Pak smugglers, but they managed to escape under the cover of darkness,” he said.
The DSP said, “As there is thick growth of weeds and reeds in the area, it was not possible for the BSF jawans to conduct a thorough search of the area at night to see if there was any casualty among Pakistani smugglers who ran back after the BSF challenged them.”In November also, the BSF and the counter-intelligence wing of the state police arrested three smugglers with 22kg of heroin, a pistol and a Pakistani SIM.
