BSF Press Statement:
On 2nd Feb 2017, alert troops of BSF foiled a fierce stand-off attack on duty mound at International Border from Pakistan side in Samba sector, Jammu region. Today a group of heavily armed terrorists reached close to International Boundary in Pakistan side taking advantage of undulating ground and thick wild growth. Terrorists took refuge in a depression having dense wild growth.
At about 1530 hrs, terrorists resorted to heavy attack on forward BSF troops deployed on duty mound by firing three Under Barrel Grenades, followed by the heavy volume of fire from automatic weapons. Alert BSF troops on duty points without caring their personal safety and security swiftly organized coordinated effective fire over them, not only to supress their fire but forced to retreat. Thus, alert BSF sentries foiled the ferocious stand-off attack from heavily armed terrorists from Pakistan by giving them a befitting reply, which might be followed by forced infiltration, if succeeded in stand-off fire. BSF troops very narrowly escaped from grenade fierce attack of terrorists.
