Amritsar, March 29 (IANS) Border Security Force (BSF) troopers killed three smugglers, including two from Pakistan, and recovered nearly 10 kg of heroin Thursday morning, a senior BSF official said here.

The incident took place Thursday morning near the Sundergarh border outpost (BOP), 30 km from here.
