Gurdaspur, Punjab: A man was today arrested for allegedly moving suspiciously near a Border Security Force post in the border area of Dera Baba Nanak in Punjab's Gurdaspur district, which has been on high alert since the terror attack in neighboring Pathankot.
The man, identified as Harpreet Singh alias Honey, was wearing a trouser similar to army fatigue and was allegedly hiding in the bushes when he was caught by BSF, the Station House Officer of Dera Baba Nanak, Paramjit Singh said today. BSF seized his mobile phone which was allegedly used to take pictures of army tanks and government buildings, Mr Singh added.
The man was handed over to the police, he said, adding that investigation was going on.
Gurdaspur, particularly its biggest town Batala, has been on high alert as locals have been reporting sighting of suspected terrorists over the last few days.
Army and police carried out extensive search operations for three days before calling off those on Friday as no suspect was found.
