BSF troops yesterday arrested four Pakistani infiltrators who had mistakenly entered Indian territory. As a gesture of goodwill, they were handed over to the Pakistan Rangers after identification and prescribed formalities.

According to BSF officials, three Pakistanis entered India through Tarn Taran while the other was detained in Singhok village in Amritsar. A BSF spokesman said the three Pakistani youths were arrested in front of the border fence near Kalash village in Tarn Taran around 12 pm yesterday.

Preliminary interrogation by the BSF and its sister agencies revealed that they had inadvertently crossed the border. “Nothing suspicious was found in their possession. Following this, a flag-taking meeting was held with Pakistan Rangers today and they were handed over to them,” a BSF official said.
