The women constables of the BSF deployed at Sundergarh Border Out Post (BOP) in Ajnala Sector noticed some movement on the Indo-Pak border late last night, the official said.

The women constables opened fire on them to stop them from entering Indian territory, he said, adding the intruders managed to escape under the cover of darkness.
