Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday said that it arrested retired Pakistani Army man and foiled a major infiltration bid along International Border in Ramghar, Samba.

A BSF spokesperson said, "During the intervening night of December 12-13 troops suspected movement of 4 to 5 persons inside Pak territory close to the International boundary. Troops kept their movement under close observation despite poor visibility in the area and fired para-illuminating bombs to have a better observation of the area," he said.

"Troops fired few rounds but taking advantage of dense fog and wild growth some suspected intruders managed to run back," he added.

"After some time, movement of one suspected person was again spotted by the sentries close to the International Boundary at about 50 meters ahead of Fence; moving suspiciously inside Indian territory, troops forced him to surrender and arrested him," he said.

"On preliminary questioning the apprehended individual has revealed his name as Muhammad Baksh, 65, son of Firoz Din of village Gandiyal, Tehsil Parsroor, district Sialkot (Pakistan). He also mentioned that he has served in Pakistan Army and is now a pensioner. BSF also recovered Pak currency notes of Rs 1000, two identity cards, small knife and paper with CMA Lahore Cantt written on it with pen from the possession of intruder," the spokesman added. GKNN
