A Pakistani national has been apprehended by Border Security Force (BSF) from Jammu and Kashmir’s Akhnoor sector during the early hours of Thursday when he attempted to cross over to this side of the International Border.
According to the reports, the BSF personnel patrolling the border area caught the 16-year-old Pakistani national. He was arrested and handed over to the police for questioning.
“He was caught when he was trying to sneak in into the Indian side,” BSF sources said. The suspect Pakistani is now detained by Jammu and Kashmir Police. However, no case has been registered yet.
“It seems that the suspected intruder is from the Pakistan side. We are questioning him, the suspect is not revealing his identity properly,” the Jammu and Kashmir Police said.
As the Pakistani forces continued unprovoked mortar shelling and firing along the LoC and International Border, the BSF was alert about the intrusion of terrorists from Pakistan across the Line of Control. The terror state of Pakistan provides cover to these terrorists by initiating continuous shelling to allow time and space for the terrorists to cross over to India.
Responding to Pakistan’s unprovoked firing, the Indian Army and the BSF on Wednesday night retaliated to Pakistan’s firing along the LoC in Rajouri’s Keri sector and IB in Kathua’s Manyari area.
Following the humiliation faced by Pakistan, after it failed to internationalise the Kashmir issue, the Pakistani establishment has been massively pushing to inflict terror in India, especially in Kashmir.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had threatened India saying that “incidents like Pulwama are bound to happen again”, after Indian government decided to revoke Article 370 and strip Jammu and Kashmir of the special status. Foretelling a terror attack, Khan said “I can already foretell this will happen. They will attempt to pin the blame on us again. They may strike us again, and we will strike back.”
