LAHORE – Wagah Border witnessed yet another unfortunate incident of traditional Indo-Pak rivalry when Indian Border Security Forces refused to release a Pakistani boy from Swat who inadvertently entered the Indian territory by violating the zero line at the International border between Pakistan and India.
India’s Border Security Force (BSF) refused to hand over the Pakistani man who mistakenly crossed the Wagah Border in Lahore during the traditional flag-lowering ceremony.
20-year-old Pakistani national named Abdullah came to witness the traditional parade. He crossed the border at a time when people were arriving in the stadium to watch soldiers from Pakistan and India carry out flag-lowering ceremony.
The Swat-born man had come alone to attend the parade, according to initial investigation. From his actions, it is being assumed that he is mentally ill.
