BSF trooper handed over to India
A BSF trooper who was swept away by strong currents in the Chenab river into Pakistani territory was Friday handed over to Indian officials on the international border in Jammu, officials said.
Satyasheel Yadav of the 33 Battalion was handed over to the Border Security Force (BSF) company commander by the Pakistan Rangers during a 40-minute flag meeting at an octroi post on the Pakistan side of the border.
Yadav, who was part of a water patrol party of the BSF in Akhnoor area of the international border, was carried by the swift river current to Bajwaat village in Sialkot area of Pakistan after their motorboat developed a mechanical fault Wednesday.
