Pak national nabbed from Indo-Pak border in Punjab


Gurdaspur (Pb), May 23: A Pakistani national was nabbed by BSF while he was allegedly trying to cross-over to the Indian side along Indo-Pak border near Kanshi Barwan Border Outpost (BOP) in Pathankot district.

The man, who was apprehended yesterday close to the Bamial Sector BOP, has been identified as Mohammad Shah, a resident of Manyal in Pakistan's Punjab province, said R K Bhatian, Commandant of 132 BSF Battalion.


A live cartridge of 9 MM pistol, Rs 2,349 in Pakistani currency, a passbook of a Pakistani bank, an AC remote and a watch were found from his possession, the BSF official said.

During preliminary investigation, Shah said he crossed the border inadvertently, according to Bhatian. A probe is on, he added.

On January 2, this year, four heavily armed Pakistani terrorists had attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station, killing eight people, including seven security personnel. The terrorists were killed in an 80-hour gun battle.
