Fazilka/Abohar, September 12

Days after two suspected Pakistani drug smugglers were shot along the border, the BSF today seized a huge cache of arms and ammunition near the border in the Abohar sector.

124 Battalion of the BSF seized three AK-47 rifles with six magazines and 91 rounds, two M-16 rifles with four magazines and 57 rounds and two pistols with four magazines and 20 rounds. Sources said a BSF patrol party observed a yellow plastic sack adjacent to the Zero Line track near the Gazniwala outpost. Another bag was found 2 metres away. Both contained arms.

The BSF called it yet another attempt by anti-national elements to push illegal consignments across the border. A search operation was in progress, it added.
