He said that the terrorists 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 global border (IB) on Tuesday. The BSF constable lost his life in a ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Samba sector on the intervening night of May 14 and 15. We have not so far detected any tunnel but are looking for it. The border along the IB has been witnessing he frequent ceasefire violation by Pakistan since last few months.

The development was alsoc confirmed by Border Security Forces (BSF). This time it is not going to be an exception.
