The number crept up to five when another Pakistani boy was nabbed by the Indian border guards. This Pak national had entered India on foot. The four Boys, who came on two motorbikes, were nabbed by the Border guards near BOP Channa in Ajnala whereas the pedestrian boy was nabbed from the BOP Saharan in Ajnala sector of the Indo-Pak border.

The BSF did not recover any firearms or drugs from them but some Pakistani currency was recovered from the Pakistani nationals.

However the BSF, which has rounded up the boys has started investigations into this and is questioning the boys for illegally entering India.

Detailing on the entire matter, BSF IG Punjab, Himmat Singh said, “The three boys nabbed are ageing between 17-20 years while the other two have age of 35 years and 22 years. Apart from the boys, the motorcycles on which the boys have come are also in our custody.”

On a question, the BSF IG said, “We are thoroughly investigating it trying to find out that what was the motive of these boys to come into Indian Territory illegally. Although no recovery has been made till now but we are taking this seriously.”

We cannot say too much at this point and things will be clear only after investigations are complete, added the IG. It may be mentioned that Ajnala and Attari Sector have been sensitive and on Friday only the BSF had shot down an intruder, who illegally entered into India.

Notably, the Indo-Pak border has been on high alert since past few days and coming of five Pakistanis illegally is seen seiously by the BSF.
