Fazilka, December 8
After several rounds of talks, the Pakistan Rangers on Thursday released a BSF constable who had inadvertently crossed the International Border near the Mauzam border outpost in Fazilka district on Wednesday morning.
Amit Prasad of 66 Battalion returned after 34 hours.
In a similar incident on December 2, a BSF man was handed over to India on the same day after a flag meet between BSF and Pakistan Rangers.
Sources said the Pakistan Rangers were suspicious over repeated incidences of jawans crossing over to Pakistan in less than a week. They said after mounting pressure by the BSF, the Pakistan Rangers, after seeking permission from the higher authorities, released the constable.
