SRINAGAR -- The Border Security Force (BSF) deployed at the Line of Control (LoC) in Keri Sector, Rajouri, Jammu and Kashmir opened fire on a group of three-four terrorists and successfully foiled their infiltration bid.

On Monday midnight, the alert BSF troops observed a suspicious movement and organised effective and calibrated fire, in which one terrorist was neutralised.

The terrorists also heavily fired on the BSF troops on duty which continued for half an hour.

During a detailed search of the area in the morning, one black bag was recovered containing one night vision monocular, an AK Magazine filled along with edible items.

An AK-47 Rifle and 06 Magazine filled was recovered from the corpse of the terrorist.

However, the remaining terrorists fled back into the forests taking advantage of undulating hilly ground.

Earlier this month, a 20-metre tunnel dug from Pakistan to help terrorists infiltrate into India was found by the BSF near the International Border.

The tunnel was discovered during searches at the Ramgarh sector in Sambha.
