The BSF on Wednesday said that the terrorists who had infiltrated in Ramgarh area of Samba near the International Border on Tuesday entered through a small tunnel in the border area.

“Infiltration happened through a small tunnel in border area, as of now no technology to detect tunnel,” BSF DG KK Sharma was quoted as saying by ANI.

“In ensuing ceasefire violations after surgical strikes, over 15 Pak rangers killed, over 10 terrorists neutralised. We have made a concerted effort to modernise our border fences,” he added.

Three terrorists were gunned down by BSF in Samba on Tuesday after an encounter that lasted several hours and was followed by intense cross-border firing by Pakistani troops. Four security personnel, including BSF DIG, were injured in this incident.
