After a lull of about three months, Pakistan Rangers again targeted Indian positions in the Samba sector on Tuesday killing a BSF jawan at the Manguchak border observation post on the International Border (IB). "We will track and neutralise them soon", said KK Sharma, Director General (DG) of BSF.

A Border Security Force soldier lost his life in a cross-border firing along the International Boundary (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district on the intervening night of May 14 and 15, because of this infiltration bid.

"There is a possibility that a group of five (terrorists) managed to sneak into this side through a tunnel on Sunday night".

The BSF Chief said that the group, which tried to infiltrate on Tuesday morning, have successfully been pushed back but in cross border firing triggered unprovoked by the Pakistan, one BSF jawan suffered a fatal injury.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Jammu and Kashmir on May 19. We have not so far detected any tunnel but we are looking for it.

"Pakistan is our hostile neighbour and tries to push terrorists and violates ceasefire regularly. The anti-tunnelling exercise is going on", he said.

The DG BSF noted there is large number of terrorists waiting on the launching pads across to sneak into J&K.

Terming the infiltration attempts ahead of the PM visit a "serious incident", Sharma said they (security forces) need to remain extra vigilant.
