Border Security Force (BSF) troops on Tuesday foiled an infiltration attempt by alleged terrorists from Pakistan, along the international border in Samba sector.
The incident occurred just hours before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Jammu and Kashmir.
According to reports, the BSF spotted infiltrators at around 5:30AM on 19 April and opened fire in a bid to stop them. No casualty or damage has been reported to the Indian side.
The Centre has approved an elaborate, five-layer plan to completely stop infiltration on the 2,900-km western border with Pakistan. It entails round-the-clock surveillance through sophisticated technology which in effect will totally "lock" India's western border to prevent Pathankot-like terror attacks and smuggling.
