BSF seizes 56 kg heroin, foils Pakistani smugglers’ attempt


New Delhi, June 3 | The Border Security Force (BSF) has foiled an attempt by Pakistani smugglers to push contraband into India with the seizure of 54 packets of suspected heroin weighing approximately 56 kg — the biggest ever recovery of such a consignment from near the Rajasthan frontier along the International Border (IB).

The BSF recovered the huge consignment in the intervening night of Wednesday and Thursday after troops fired, sensing suspicious movements on the border and forcing the smugglers to flee abandoning the contraband.

The recovery was made near the India-Pakistan International Border in Rajasthan’s Bikaner.

“BSF troops observed some suspicious movement near the wired portion of the border under Chaiky Bandly border outpost. The troops opened fire, but the Pak-based smugglers fled taking advantage of the darkness. During a search, 56.630 kg suspected heroin was seized,” the BSF said in a statement.

“This is the biggest such consignment seized ever from Rajasthan frontier area by the BSF.”

The BSF, which is mandated to guard the 3,323 km India-Pakistan border, has also registered an FIR in the matter.

Officials in the BSF said that the troopers on the spot have also found foot marks of the smugglers.

The BSF foiled a similar attempt by Pakistani smugglers on February 7-8 night this year in Sri Ganganagar district along the border. On March 5 and March 20, the BSF foiled similar smuggling attempts and killed two infiltrators separately in both the cases.

San Francisco, Dec 6 | Musk hiring engineers to solve problems that affects people’s lives. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk on Monday tweeted that he is hiring Artificial Intelligence (AI) engineers who are passionate about solving day-to-day problems through AI.

“As always, Tesla is looking for hardcore AI engineers who care about solving problems that directly affect people’s lives in a major way,” Musk tweeted along with a link to apply for the job.

Interested candidates can apply by filling in fields like name, email, exceptional work done in software, hardware or AI, dropping their resume in the PDF format and hitting the Apply option.

As per the website, Tesla’s AI and Autopilot unit develops and deploys autonomy at scale in vehicles, robots and more.

“We believe that an approach based on advanced for vision and planning, supported by efficient use of inference hardware, is the only way to achieve a general solution for full self-driving and beyond,” the website read.

In a 2014 interview, Musk said he looked for “evidence of exceptional ability” in a potential employee, rather than a degree from a prestigious university.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
