A 24-year old Kashmiri man, identified as Hilal Ahmed, was detained by the authorities at the border after a badge of terrorist outfit Hizbul Mujahideen was found from his luggage.
The man who had gone to Pakistan through the Attari border some 10 days ago had returned to India on Tuesday.
An official said Ahmed came to the customs area at the integrated checkpost at Attari and the badge was found from his bag. Ahmed was detained by the customs department and was later handed over to the intelligence agencies for questioning.
The officials refused to divulge more details.
When contacted, Amritsar SSP Harkamal Preet Singh said: “We don’t have any input on this till now.”
Sources said that Ahmed was still in custody of the intelligence agencies.
