Six Indian smugglers arrested inside Pakistani territory: ISPR

Rawalpindi (Web Desk): Pakistan Rangers apprehended six Indian nationals who had crossed into Pakistani territory from July 29 to August 3, the military's media wing stated.

According to the Inter Services-Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian nationals were involved in smuggling narcotics, weapons and ammunition into country's territory.

"It is surprising that these smugglers could cross the heavily fenced border under perpetual surveillance of Indian 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," the statement said.

The apprehended smugglers were identified as Gurmeej, Shinder Singh, Juginder Singh, Vishal, Rattan Pal Singh and Garvender Singh.

The statement said that these Indian smugglers will be dealt as per law for illegally entering into Pakistan and indulging in nefarious activities.

"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," the ISPR said.
