Jammu: The Border Security Force on Wednesday thwarted an infiltration bid along the International Border (IB) in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir, where a high alert has been sounded ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit, officials said.

"There was an (infiltration) attempt today and it was foiled," Inspector General of BSF, Jammu Frontier, Ram Awtar, told PTI.

PM Modi will be visiting the state on May 19.

A group of infiltrators tried to cross over to the Indian territory in Bobiyan area earlier today, taking advantage of the heavy foliage in the region.

A few rounds of fire were exchanged between the two sides before the infiltrators fled, Awtar said.

This is the fourth such infiltration attempt to be foiled by the BSF along the IB in the past four days.

A 28-year-old BSF jawan was killed as Pakistani troops opened fire at forward posts in Manguchak area yesterday to help infiltrators cross over.
