Suspected woman intruder shot dead near LoC in Baramulla
Another detained in Rajouri
Srinagar/Jammu: An unidentified woman, believed to be an intruder from Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK), was shot dead by security forces on Monday after she crossed the Line of Control (LoC) in Baramulla district of north Kashmir, officials said.
“The woman crossed the LoC in the Kamalkote area and was coming close to the border fence. She was challenged by the troops but she did not pay heed,” they said.
The troops then opened fire on her, resulting in her death, they added.
According to the officials, the matter is being investigated.
Separately, a Pakistani intruder was nabbed by the Indian Army when he attempted to infiltrate from across the LoC in Rajouri district, officials said on Monday.
Mohammad Usman (30), a resident of Karela village of Kotli in PaK, was intercepted by troops after he entered Tarkundi village late Sunday evening, the officials said.
They said nothing incriminating was recovered from the possession of the intruder, who is being questioned.
Earlier on April 29, Indian troops detained a father-son duo from PaK who had inadvertently crossed into this side in nearby Poonch district. Both the individuals were later repatriated to Pakistan through Chakan Da Bagh border crossing point.
