Seventeen kilograms of Heroin worth Rs. 85 crores were seized by BSF personnel at the International border here as smugglers allegedly from Pakistan managed to escape, officials said on Sunday.

A few intruders from Pakistan were seen moving into Indian territory after crossing the barbed fencing, a BSF official said.
Inspite of repeated warnings, the intruders were not willing to surrender, following which BSF troops fired two gun shots, but the intruders under the cover of darkness managed to return to Pakistan, he added.
The official said that in the morning when a massive search operation was launched, the BSF recovered seventeen kilograms of heroin which the intruders did not manage to take back.
