Troopers fire on Pakistan border

Jammu, July 31 (IANS) Border Security Force (BSF) troopers guarding the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir on Friday opened fire after they noticed suspicious movements, police said.

“During the night, BSF troopers at Khora (Samba) border outpost fired three to four rounds of automatic gunfire after noticing suspicious movements near their post,” a police officer told IANS.
