A female intruder was killed by border security force (BSF) troops at the International Border (IB) in Akhnoor sector of Jammu district.

According to police, troops of 33 battalion of the BSF killed the intruder near Chak Phagwari border outpost on Thursday night. 

"The intruder was repeatedly challenged, but she ignored all warnings and crossed into the border. Troops then fired to foil the intrusion," police said.

According to BSF sources, the troops could not distinguish the intruder's gender in darkness and had to fire as he ignored all warnings.

Yesterday, three soldiers and a woman were killed in a militant attack in a south Kashmir village. Two officers, a Lt. Colonel and a Major, and three more soldiers were injured in the attack owned by Hizbul Mujahideen, the largest militant group in the border state.
