Police said that this was the second infiltration attempt in the Samba sector in the past fortnight. Earlier, an intruder was shot dead by BSF along the IB in the same sector on May 5.

The Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday late evening foiled an infiltration bid in Jammu and Kashmir and arrested a Pakistani intruder in the Banglaid area of Samba district.

"The intruder was challenged after which the troopers fired shots resulting in injury to the intruder.
