Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Feb. 2 (ANI): The Border Security Force (BSF) on Thursday foiled a fierce stand-off attack, on duty mound in Jammu's Samba sector, at the International Border (IB). According to the BSF officials, a group of heavily armed terrorists reached close to the Pakistan side of the IB, taking advantage of undulating ground and thick wild growth. Terrorists took refuge in a depression having dense wild growth. At, around, 3.30 p.m. terrorists resorted to heavy attack on forward BSF troops deployed on duty mound by firing three under barrel grenades, followed by the heavy volume of fire from automatic weapons "Alert BSF troops on duty points, without caring their personal safety and security, swiftly organized coordinated effective fire over them, not only to suppress their fire but forced to retreat," officials said. "Thus, alert BSF sentries foiled the ferocious stand-off attack from heavily armed terrorists from Pakistan by giving them a befitting reply, which might be followed by forced infiltration, if succeeded in stand-off fire. BSF troops very narrowly escaped from grenade fierce attack of terrorists," the officials added. (ANI)
