Gujarat Border: After finishing preliminary interrogation, BSF handed over the youngster to the Khavda police station in Gujarat’s Kutch region.
Gujarat Border: Border Security Forces (BSF) soldiers arrested a 15-year-old Pakistani boy along the international border in Khavda, Kutch district, Gujarat. The child was apprehended on Sunday at 11 a.m. after crossing the border fence near pillar number 1099.
The teenager is from Sindh Sahichok in the Tharparkar region of Pakistan. After completing the preliminary interrogation and obtaining a medical examination at the Khavda police station in the Kutch region, Gujarat, BSF handed the youth over to the community health center in Khavda village.
“According to a preliminary BSF investigation, the boy mentioned that he had quarreled with members of his family and fled his home,” officials told PTI.
Another such incident occurred earlier this month when a 12-year-old Bangladeshi child was caught by the Border Security Force (BSF) on his way back via the international border after visiting his grandfather in Murshidabad, West Bengal. The BSF team handed the minor over to Bangladesh border guards after standard questioning as a sign of goodwill.
On July 22, BSF staff arrested a youth from around the Pirojpur border post who was attempting to return to Bangladesh across the international border.
According to Vishwabandhu, the commander-in-chief of the 78th Battalion, an investigation revealed that this young child did not come to India to commit any wrong or wrongdoing.
“The boy crossed the international border to meet his grandfather who is called Iramul Sheikh and who lives in the Indian village of Bajitpur in Murshidabad district. Although crossing the international border falls under the category of a crime, but out of respect for the boy’s future and the feelings of border residents, the boy is handed over to the BGB as a gesture of goodwill, ”he said, as News18 noted.
