"The BSF patrolling party spotted intruders around 3 a.m. and challenged them. When they started running, the BSF men opened fire. One intruder was killed on the spot while the other managed to escape," a BSF official said.

The infiltrators were trying to sneak into the Indian Territory from across the international border at Chawali post area in Ranbirsinghpora sector, about 35 kms west of Jammu.
