BSF troops foiled an infiltration bid along the International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district this morning, the state police department said.

BSF troops at a border out post observed some movement along IB in Ramgarh sector around 5 AM Monday morning, a senior police officer told.

They fired several rounds and illumination flares, he said adding that the suspected militants were forced back and the infiltration bid was foiled. “Troops are on alert to foil any bid,” a BSF officer said.

On February 23, the BSF and Pakistan Rangers held a flag meeting along the IB here during which the border guards of the two countries expressed their commitment to maintain peace and tranquillity.
