A Pakistani intruder was shot dead along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, officials said.
The infiltrator was challenged by the troops guarding the Balakote sector in Mendhar sub-division when he was trying to sneak into this side from across the border, the officials said.

The area has been cordoned off and details are awaited, the officials said.
