A Chinese traveler gave anxious moments to the army and police in Garrison town of Samba on Jammu-Pathankot highway, on Sunday afternoon.

“Around 1 pm, a Chinese person was seen clicking photographs of the Samba town, which has a Samba Brigade and other army units. Troops took him into custody and some officers from the military intelligence grilled him before handing him to Samba police,” said Army sources.

The Chinese national has been identified as Liu Wenge, a resident of Jiangsu in China.

Samba district SSP, Joginder Singh said, “Nothing incriminating was found from him. The Chinese national had a genuine one-month travel visa to India. After verifying his credentials, he was released.”

Wenge had arrived in Kolkata on July 13. He was going to Leh on a hired motorbike.
