Border Security Force (BSF) foiled an intrusion attempt by Pakistan on the Srikaranpur border area in Rajasthan on Saturday, on the 14th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attack.

According to the BSF, the intruder, identified as Safdar Hussain, 39, hailing from Pakistan's Bahawalnagar district was shot below the waist after he defied caution by the sentry.

The intruder was later handed over to the Pakistan Rangers after questioning.

"Alert #BSF troops foiled Pak intruder's attempt in #Srikaranpur border area on 26 Nov afternoon. Safdar Hussain (39), R/o Izafi Basti Chak 46 Fateh, Dist Bahawalnagar was shot below the waist, on defying caution by Sentry; given first aid, after questioning handed over to Pak Rangers," BSF tweeted on Saturday.

Earlier on Saturday, after hearing the sound of a suspected flying object coming from the Pakistani side around 9.05 pm on Friday, security personnel deployed at Daoke Border Outpost (BoP) in the Amritsar sector on India-Pakistan international border fired six rounds from their INSAS rifles and downed a drone.

Later, it was found to be a China-made Quadcopter DJI Matrice 300RTK brand drone, lying in the field near the border. A few cameras were also found fitted in the drone.

"The drone will be sent to the BSF Francis unit after investigation," said Jasbir Singh, Commandant, BSF.

In the last two months, Border Security Force (BSF) has shot down three drones in the Amritsar area.
