BSF troops in Ferozepur, Punjab, captured a teenage boy from Pakistan near the International Border on Wednesday morning. The troops noticed someone near the border fence and when he tried to run away, they pursued and caught him. Officials are currently questioning him along with other agencies to understand why he crossed the IB.

Sources indicated that the boy is approximately 15 years old. This incident follows the recent shooting of another Pakistani intruder near the Sadqi border outpost in the Abohar sector, as reported by officials on Tuesday. Troops had issued warnings to the intruder who ignored them and approached the border fence, leading to the troops firing three shots.
