The Border Security Force (BSF) handed over two Pakistani nationals to Pak Rangers who inadvertently crossed over near Punjab’s Gurdaspur on Tuesday on humanitarian grounds and as a goodwill gesture. On May 14, 2024, at about 10:00 am, vigilant BSF troops on duty observed the suspicious movement of two persons near the international border who subsequently entered Indian territory from Pakistan, according to the Public Relations Officer of BSF.

They started approaching the border fence. BSF troops immediately challenged the intruders and subsequently apprehended both of them at about 10:10 a.m. This apprehension took place ahead of the border fence near Village Ghaniaka Bet of Gurdaspur district.

Upon questioning, they said that both were not aware of the alignment of the IB and had inadvertently entered Indian territory.
