According to the officials, one AK 56 Rifle, two magazines with 61 live rounds, one magnum rifle, one magazine with 29 rounds, one pistol, two magazines, two PVC pipes, and Pakistani rupees 30 have been recovered from the possession of intruders.

In the early hours of Thursday, two intruders were killed by the BSF troops at the Rajatal border out-post.
