RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: Pakistan Rangers Troops deployed along international border with India have apprehended six Indian nationals inside Pakistani territory from July 29 to August 03, 2023.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that these smugglers/ criminals were trying to smuggle narcotics, weapons and ammunition into Pakistan.
The ISPR said that it is surprising that these smugglers could cross the heavily fenced border under perpetual surveillance of Indian Border Security Force (BSF). It shows likely complicity of BSF troops in narco and weapons smuggling.
In addition, it is also surprising that Indian BSF troops have so far failed to report six missing citizens
Four of these smugglers, namely Gurmeej son of Guldeep Singh, Shinder Singh son of Bhora Singh, Juginder Singh son of Thakur Singh and Vishal son of Jagga belong to Ferozpur, Rattan Pal Singh son of Mahinder Singh belongs to Jalandhar and Garvender Singh son of Mukhtiar Singh belongs to Ludhiana.
The ISPR said that these Indian smugglers will be dealt as per law of the land for illegally entering into Pakistan and indulging in nefarious activities.
It said that the security forces of Pakistan will continue to maintain vigil and expect that Indian BSF will act professionally and sever their ties with smuggling rackets operating from their territory.
