Amritsar: Three Pakistani intruders were shot dead by BSF during an infiltration bid along the Indo-Pak border in Pul Mohra area of the district.
Suspicious movement was noted by a BSF patrolling party last night. On spotting the three intruders they were asked to surrender but they instead opened fire on the security personnel, a BSF official said.
The patrolling party responded with firing and a gun-fight ensued in which all three were killed, he added.
A search operation was carried out this morning during which the three bodies were recovered, besides a mobile phone loaded with Pakistan SIM card, a Chinese sophisticated automatic pistol and empty cartridges.
