Pakistani border guards on Friday claimed they had arrested another Indian national on charges of illegally entering the country.

"We arrested Yashwa Bhagwan, 25, of Manipur while he was attempting to enter Pakistan from the border in Kasur area," Pakistan Rangers spokesman Nadeem Raza told PTI.

Raza claimed Bhagwan had confessed to be an agent of an Indian intelligence agency and wanted to carry out "terrorist activities" in Pakistan.

Bhagwan is the third Indian national arrested on similar charges during the past week.

The other two are Ghian Chand Krishan, 24, of Solan district and Rabi Paul, 25, from Jaipur in India the police claimed.

When Paul was brought to a state-run hospital in Kasur for a medical check up, he told journalists that he was a Bangladeshi national and a Hindu by religion.
