Border Security Force personnel on Thursday morning killed an intruder along the international border in Budhwar area of Arnia sector in Jammu and Kashmir.
The body of the intruder was recovered by the BSF and he was later identified as 35-year-old Anwar. The intruder was reportedly a resident of Sialkot in Pakistan.
Troops observed movement of two-three persons along the IB near Nikowal Border Out Post (BoP) in Arnia sector around 5.45 am, said IG BSF, Jammu frontier, Ram Awtar.
They challenged them and opened fire resulting in the death of one intruder. The other intruders managed to escape.
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 yesterday night only. The coordinated precision fire of BSF troopers silenced Pakistani guns," a BSF spokesman said.
On Wednesday, a BSF jawan was killed in unprovoked firing by Pakistan, the first this year, in Samba sector of Jammu and the force had since then launched retaliatory fire.
