Pak Man, Who Crossed Border To Kill BJP's Nupur Sharma, Arrested In Rajasthan!

A Pakistani national who crossed into India across the international border to allegedly kill suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma has been arrested in Rajasthan's Sri Ganga Nagar district.
A joint team of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and other intelligence agencies is interrogating the arrested Pakistani national.

A senior Border Security Force (BSF) officer informed that the man was arrested on July 16 around 11 pm from near the Hindumalkot border outpost. He was found in a suspicious condition by a patrol team and was immediately detained and searched.

"We found an 11-inch long knife, religious books, clothes, food and sand in a bag from his possession. He identified himself as Rizwan Ashraf, a native of Mandi Bahauddin town located in North Punjab, Pakistan," he said.

He added that during preliminary investigation, the suspect informed that he crossed the border to kill Nupur Sharma because of her controversial remarks about Prophet. He planned to visit Ajmer Dargah first before executing his plan.

"We handed him over to the local police for further investigation. He was brought before a judge, from where he was sent to police custody for eight days. We informed the relevant intelligence services about him," he added.

He is interrogated by a joint team of ZS, RAO and military intelligence.

The move comes in the backdrop of now-suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma's remarks about the Prophet Muhammad, which led to widespread violent protests across the country and also drew condemnation from some Gulf countries.
