The Indian Army announced the deaths of five suspected drug traffickers this morning who tried to infiltrate across the border with Pakistan this Saturday.
“Five infiltrators were shot dead by security forces this morning in an exchange of fire outside Punjab,” said a military statement posted on the Indian Border Security Force (FSB) Twitter account. Initially, it was believed that they were militiamen from Pakistan .
After the incident, police found an assault rifle, four pistols, chargers and nearly ten kilos of heroin valued at $ 7 million.
The infiltrators were trying to reach the Indian side via the border area of Khemkaran in the Tarn Taran district when they were advised of this by an FSB patrol.
