In a goodwill gesture, the BSF has handed over a 65-year-old Pakistani national, who had inadvertently crossed into Indian territory on February 10, back to his country.

Border Security Force (BSF) troops at Barreke border out post in Ferozepur sector apprehended Mohammad Ali, resident of village Sheru Khana in Pakistan, on February 10 as he inadvertently crossed the international boundary, entered Indian territory and reached near the border security fence, a BSF official said on Sunday.

The official said Pakistan Rangers were contacted on Saturday and Ali was handed over to them on humanitarian grounds.
