By A Staff Reporter: BSF has zero tolerance on infiltrators and terrorists entering from across the border in Jammu and Kashmir and other sectors in India. Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and defence minister Rajnath Singh spelled out the government stand on cross border terrorism, BSF chief Nitin Agrawal mentioned that the border force will gun down any militants or terrorists trying to cross the border. ``We will not sit and wait. We have the right to protect our lives in self defence. Make no mistake that BSF will shoot to kill terrorists and militants trying to infiltrate into the country,'' he said in an exclusive conversation with ANM News over phone. BSF has so far obtained heightened success in shooting down drones and recovering huge quantities of arms and ammunition and drugs in the western border. ``We are in a state of high alert along the eastern border too and warn mischief mongers and militants that we will not spare anyone,'' he added. Prime Minister and defence minister were clear in stating that India will not tolerate cross border terrorism and is even prepared to enter foreign land to chase down such militants.
