Three Pakistani nationals, who were held by BSF near the international border after they had inadvertently crossed over into Indian territory, were sent back to their country, an official said on Wednesday.

According to BSF officials, the three Pakistani boys had crossed over to India through BOP Saharan, around 25 km from Amritsar, on Wednesday afternoon. They were identified as Mohhammed Abbas Qaume and Rifaqat Ali of Lahore, and Nishad Ali of Narowal district in Pakistan. All are in their tweeties.

BSF said the trio were noticed at border village Ajnala by BSF patrolling party. On being asked, the Pakistan nationals told BSF they came to see fencing line of India-Pakistan border.

Immediately a flag meeting was arranged and BSF handed over the Pak nationals to Pak rangers, said a senior officer of BSF.

He said, “The trio had come to see border but inadvertently crossed over into the Indian territory.”

Sources said except three Pakistani phones and SIM cards, and four thousand Pakistani bills, the BSF found nothing suspicious from the trio.
