The Border Security Force (BSF) today killed two men who intruded into the Indian territory in Sriganganagar district.

Sources said the BSF troops noticed some movement near the Khyaliwala border post at 1 am. Two suspects were seen throwing an object near the barricades and running back towards Pakistan, after which the BSF personnel opened fire and killed them on the spot.

The police sources said 10 yellow packets that weighed 8.960 kg were allegedly thrown by the suspects. Eight packets were found on the Indian side while two were seen on the other side of the fencing. The bodies of both intruders were also lying nearby.

Two foreign-made pistols, 24 live cartridges, a night vision device, an earphone used for mobile phones and Rs 15,000 in Pakistan currency were recovered from the intruders. One of the deceased, carrying a Pakistan identity card, was identified as Mushtaq Ahmed. The identity of the other intruder was yet to be ascertained. The autopsy was conducted by calling doctors on the spot.

Sources said the two Pakistani intruders were suspected to be heroin smugglers. It is also suspected that some persons might have reached the border to collect the contraband. A search operation is being conducted by the BSF and the police are examining call records of the phones active in the area.
