Infiltration bid foiled by BSF, ex Pak army man arrested

The BSF on Tuesday foiled an infiltration bid from across the border at Ramgarh sector in Jammu and Kashmir and arrested an ex-Pakistani Army man, The Indian Express has reported.

Identifying the infiltrator as Mohammad Baksh, son of Firozdin of village Gandiyal in Sialkot district Pakistan, the report citing official sources said that he admitted having retired from Pakistan army. Two identity cards including one pertaining to his nationality, two Pakistani currency notes of Rs 500 each, a small knife and a paper with “CMA Lahore Cantt” written on it with pen were seized from him.


According to the report, in the early hours of Tuesday morning the BSF spotted 4-5 people moving suspiciously on the Pakistani side of the international border in Jammu. After keeping a close watch on their movement for a while they fired para illuminating bombs to illuminate the area which spooked the men into retreat. However, after some time the BSF spotted a man on the Indian side of the border, the report added.

The BSF troops challenged him and even fired a few rounds but he kept moving in the area. He then arrested by BSF after having moved ahead in the area.

On November 29, BSF troops had killed three heavily armed terrorists at Chamliyal in Ramgarh sector after they had sneaked nearly 80 meters inside the Indian territory through an underground tunnel from Pakistan.
