Jaipur: BSF personnel have held three persons under suspicious conditions and seized a gun from their possession near the India-Pakistan border in Sriganganagar district in Rajasthan.

The three, identified as Krishna Ram (47), Bewa Ram (54) and Krishna Ram (38), were intercepted by officials of the Border Security Force last night. They have been handed over to the local police for interrogation, Circle Officer Himanshu Raigar said.

A gun was also recovered from the possession of the held trio, the CO said. The further interrogation in the case is on, he added.

Earlier in the day, the Ministry of Home Affairs identified more than 40 vulnerable unfenced stretches along the India-Pakistan border that will be covered by laser walls soon, a fortnight after the deadly Pathakot terror attack.
