The Border Security Forces (BSF) today made a confirmation that five militants have sneaked into the Indian side. This is seen as a cause of worry keeping in mind the upcoming visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Jammu and Kashmir on May 19.
BSF Director General K.K. Sharma, who arrived here on Tuesday, after a trooper was killed in firing by the Pakistani rangers in Samba district, confirmed that the successful infiltration bid took place on Monday.
The BSF chief said the militants had sneaked in using a tunnel. He said a bigger infiltration bid aided by the Pakistani rangers was, however, foiled by the BSF on the international border (IB) on Tuesday.
Modi is scheduled to attend several official functions during his one-day visit on Saturday.
