The BSF has been on high alert following the air attack by the Pakistan Air Force on February 27, a day after the air strikes by the Indian Air Force on a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror camp in Pakistan's Balakot in retaliation to the car bombing on February 14 by the JeM of a CRPF convoy, killing 40 of its personnel in Pulwama .
The suspect, identified as Mohammad Shahrukh (21), a resident of Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh, had a mobile phone, which contained some suspicious numbers, a BSF official said. "During questioning, his answers were incoherent and contradictory. He has been handed over to police for further investigation and questioning."
The official said Shahrukh was selling bedsheets in the border village on a motorcycle and had 13 sheets with him.
