Even as the operation to dig open the 400-metre- long tunnel discovered on Saturday along the border in Samba district is on in full swing, two Pakistani bikers strayed into the RS Pura sector on Sunday morning.
The two, identified as Mahmood, 20, and Tahir Ali, 23, from Kamarawali village in Pakistan, were arrested by the Border Security Force and later handed over to the Pak Rangers after a detailed interrogation.
The BSF personnel posted at Karotana, 35 km from Jammu, spotted two bikers riding into the Indian territory and arrested them. According to officials, the two were friends and had crossed the border inadvertently. “After interrogating them, it was confirmed that they had inadvertently entered this side of the international border. Nothing incriminating was found from them,” said officials.
The BSF officials said they handed over the two to the Pak Rangers this evening, as a goodwill gesture.
Police said the BSF informed them about the case after they were sent back, adding the personnel did everything themselves.
