BSF arrests Pakistani intruder along IB in Jammu

Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

A 22-year-old Pakistani man was today arrested from along the International Border in Suchetgarh sector of R S Pura here soon after he crossed over to this side of the fence, a officer said.

During questioning, the man, identified as Ali Raja, said that he was a tailor at Pasroor in Pakistan's Sialkot, the officer said, adding Pakistani currency notes were recovered from him.

(BSF) troops noticed that a man was trying to sneak into this side in the early hours under the cover of darkness and subsequently arrested him near the border fence, he said.

Last month, scuttling a major infiltration bid, troops unearthed a 14-feet-long tunnel across the IB in nearby Arnia sector which was being dug from the Pakistani side.

The unfinished tunnel, approximately three-feet high and two-and-a-half feet wide, on the slopes of the of Dhamalla nulla (stream) was detected on September 30.

A US-made compass, 60 rounds of ammunition, a hand grenade and other items, most of which carrying markings were seized from the tunnel.
