An Indian national who had gone to Pakistan illegally, was arrested by Border Security Forces at the Wagah border while sneaking back into the country.


Mohhamad Hussain (20) was nabbed by sleuths of the BSF last evening after he crossed into the Indian side through the Joint Check Post (JCP) of the Wagah border dressed as a porter.

Hussain entered India during the unloading of trade items between India and Pakistan on the JCP, where trucks were parked on both sides of the zero line.

Hussain, who was on the truck on the Pakistani side, came down and jumped on to the vehicle parked on the Indian territory.

Later, he disembarked from the truck and started to move around the BSF check post at Wagah border. Officials arrested him after noticing his suspicious movements.

On being interrogated, Hussain revealed that he was a resident of Tripura. A few weeks back, he went to Jammu and Kashmir and crossed over to Pakistan from Poonch border without possessing a passport.

Hussain said he spent a few days in Lahore after which he decided to come back. Hussain also revealed that there were dozens of people who crossed into Pakistan along with him from Poonch border.

There were many Indian and Pakistani porters on both sides of the border during the movement of trade items, and Hussain thought that this was the best opportunity to slip back into India dressed as a porter, a BSF official said.
