The Ex-17 battalion of the BSF observed suspicious movement of an intruder at Border Outpost Rear Kakkar about 7:55 pm yesterday.

The troops warned the intruder.

“However, he kept on moving towards the border fence in aggressive posture. The BSF troops then opened fire and killed him,” a BSF official said.
