December 26, 2009 13:01 IST

Four troopers of the Border Security Force were injured on Saturday morning in a powerful blast near the international border in Samba sector of Jammu region.

Police sources said the pre-planted explosive device went off while a party of the BSF was busy patrolling the Manguchak area near the international border today morning.

"Four BSF troopers were wounded in the explosion and they were taken to the hospital for treatment," a police officer said.

Earlier this week, the BSF had foiled three infiltration bids on the border with Pakistan in Jammu region, leading to exchange of fire with the Pakistan army.
