Islamabad:  Believe it or not but authorities in Pakistan's Punjab province have "arrested" a monkey after it crossed the border with India, according to a media report on Monday.

The monkey was captured by wildlife officials in Bahawalpur, Express News channel reported.

Local residents initially tried to capture the monkey after it entered Cholistan area of Bahawalpur district. After the monkey evaded them, the people informed wildlife officials, who captured the animal after a struggle.

The monkey was taken to Bahawalpur Zoo, where officials named him Bobby.

In May last year, Indian police detained a pigeon and kept it under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying mission for Pakistan.

The bird was found by a resident of India's Punjab state, which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 40 km from Amritsar.
