A Pakistani national was apprehended along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district after he crossed into India, a defence spokesman said Thursday.

"The Army observed some movement in the Ranghar Nallah along the LoC and apprehended the Pakistani national in the Poonch Sector," he said.

He was identified as Umeer Yousaf (23), son of Mohd Yousaf Narwal and a resident of Hajira tehsil in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, the spokesman said.

He was roaming along the Ranghar Nala area and crossed the LoC on Wednesday night, he said.

The man has been handed over to police. TwoID cards, a packet of tobacco and Rs 50 in Pakistani currency were seized from him, the spokesman said.
