The BSF on Saturday seized about 7 kg heroin worth Rs 35 crore in the international market and fake Indian currency with a face value of Rs 5.73 lakh along the Indo-Pak border in Ferozepur sector.


"During the early hours yesterday, security personnel posted at Border Out Post spotted some movement near fencing along two border pillars," said commandant of 143 battalion of BSF PK Rathore.

The BSF troops immediately challenged the persons approaching the fencing in an area close to the Zero line, following which the intruders went back towards Pakistan side, Rathore said.

Though they managed to escape under the cover of thick weed in the area, the BSF seized the heroin consignment and the money concealed in a bag.
