Smugglers sitting in Pakistan often smuggle weapons and drugs by taking advantage of the fog in the cold season. To prevent this, the soldiers of ‘Border Security Force’ patrol the area.
Pakistani Rangers have once again caught a soldier of the Indian Army. The soldier of ‘Border Security Force’ was patrolling in the Punjab sector. Meanwhile, he accidentally crossed the India-Pakistan border on Wednesday, after which Pak Rangers caught him. Officials informed about this on Thursday. He said that the Pak Rangers have not yet handed over the Indian Army jawan back. Although they are waiting for it.
This is the second incident in the month (in December) of entering Pakistan border during patrol. Earlier on December 1, while patrolling the Indo-Pak international border, a jawan had entered the Pakistan border. The same day Pakistan Rangers handed over the jawan back to BSF after a flag meeting. This jawan was patrolling the ‘zero line’ near a post of the force located in Abohar sector. Officials said that in the new case, the BSF jawan crossed the border on Wednesday morning due to low visibility due to extremely dense fog, after which Pak Rangers caught him.
Jawan waiting to be released
A senior BSF officer said, ‘BSF and Pak Rangers are in touch with each other. Information is awaited in the case of the release of the jawan. Due to dense fog in the Abohar sector of Punjab, the jawan could not see the ‘Zero Line’, so he crossed it and entered inside the Pakistani border. Smugglers sitting in Pakistan often smuggle weapons and drugs by taking advantage of the fog in the cold season. To prevent this, the soldiers of ‘Border Security Force’ patrol the area. In winter, there is fog in the morning in the morning, due to which the soldiers have to face a lot of difficulties in patrolling the entire area.
What is ‘Zero Line’?
For the search, the jawans have to go through the fencing (wire ban). This 12 feet high barricade has been done within the Indian border. The area beyond the barricade (from 300 to 500 meters) comes under the Indian territory and after that comes the ‘Zero Line’ i.e. International Border. Every country determines the border for its security, which is called ‘Zero Line’ or International Border. If the army or citizens of a country cross this line, then it is considered an intruder by the other country.
