"After a brief encounter last night with Pakistani intruders, during search, the dead body of an intruder, 10 kg heroin, a mobile phone loaded with Pakistani SIM and one German-made 30 mm calibre automatic loaded pistol were found on the spot," a BSF official said.

According to BSF official, a group of Pakistani intruders entered into Indian territory through the Khemkaran sector.

On being noticed by the BSF night patrolling party, the intruders were asked to stop but they kept on marching towards Indian side and fired gun shots on the BSF party.

BSF fired in retaliation whereupon three intruders managed to escape to Pakistan and one was shot dead on the spot, he said.
