A BSF jawan deployed along the India-Pakistan border was captured by Pakistani forces early on Wednesday after he was swept away by a strong current of the Chenab river in Jammu and Kashmir.

A BSF jawan deployed along the India-Pakistan border was captured by Pakistani forces early on Wednesday after he was swept away by a strong current of the Chenab river in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Border Security Force (BSF), immediately after the incident occurred early morning, sought a flag meeting with their counterparts Pakistan Rangers for getting the jawan back.

"Yes, we have arrested an Indian border security official. He is currently under investigation and being treated very well," said Tasnim Aslam, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Office in Islamabad.

"A contact between the militaries of two countries was made yesterday and another contact is expected soon. If he is not linked with any matter harming our security, and appears clear in the investigation, he may be released after complete investigation of the matter," she added.

BSF sources, meanwhile, said they are in touch with Pakistani officials to work out a procedure for the release of the jawan, but added there is no guarantee that he will return tomorrow. Sources also said that they hope that the issue is resolved amicably.

The trooper, identified as Satyasheel Yadav, was part of a team patrolling the River Chenab on Wednesday when the engine of the motorboat failed.

While attempting to climb into a rescue boat, the jawan fell into the river and was pushed by strong currents onto the Pakistani side where he was taken into custody.
