The Border Security Force (BSF) handed over the Pakistani intruder, identified as Muhammad Abesh (19), a resident of the cross-border village Manyara, to the Punjab Police for further investigation.

He was arrested by the police under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act, Passport Act, Indian Penal Code and Arms Act. He entered Indian territory near Daoke border outpost on May 2 and opened fire when BSF jawans challenged him. BSF recovered pistols with magazines (Heckler and Koch), five .38 caliber rounds, 10 rupee Pakistani currency notes, a lighter and a synthetic feminine ring from his possession.

BSF officials said the jawans noticed Pakistanis approaching Indian territory near Daoke border village. Senior officials were immediately alerted and BSF troops cordoned off the area and acted against the intruders. The intruders fired at the jawans, who moved tactically and subdued and arrested the suspects with minimal force.

Galinda police filed charges against the suspect in local court and took him into police custody for further investigation. His motives for crossing the border are still unknown. Officials said the Pakistani national claimed to have entered this side of the border after an argument with his family. Police said further investigations were underway.
