A Pakistani intruder was killed as Border Security Force (BSF) troops foiled a major infiltration attempt along the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday, officials said.

According to BSF, the vigilant troops gunned down the intruder after he ignored the repeated warnings and tried to flee after managing to cross the border fence near the Jabowal border outpost in the Arnia sector around 1.45 AM.
