JAMMU: An ex-army man from Pakistan was arrested by BSF while he was trying to sneak into the country from the International Border (IB) along Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The intruder, who was nabbed last evening, has been identified as Mohammed, 65, of village-Gandyal in Pasroor tehsil of Sialkot, which is in Pakistan's Punjab province, a senior BSF officer said, adding that the man disclosed that he had retired from Pakistan army.

"Late last evening, alert BSF troops noticed suspicious movement on Pakistani side near the fence in Ramgarh Sector and they fired a few rounds," a senior BSF officer said.

The officer said visibility was hindered due to fog and wild growth.

"Later, at some distance at about 0100 hours, a BSF jawan on duty again observed a suspicious movement of a person in front of a fence on the Indian side of IB," he said.

The intruder was forced to surrender and was arrested, the officer said.
