‘Facebook Aashiqui’: Pak Man Caught While Crossing Border Fence To Meet Mumbai Woman He Loved

Jaipur: Clearly, love knows no boundaries or borders for that matter. A 22-year-old young man from Pakistan’s border district Bahawalpur was arrested after he crossed the border fence in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar late on Saturday night, Hindustan Times reported.

Mohammad Amir told the border guards that he was on his way to Mumbai to meet the woman he befriended on Facebook and fell in love with.

The young man only had a mobile phone and some currency notes on him when he was caught on Saturday by a patrol team of the Border Security Force in Anupgarh, one of the district’s 10 tehsils, Anand Sharma, superintendent of police, Sri Ganganagar district was quoted as saying.

A joint team of intelligence officers will start interrogating him, possibly on Tuesday, and cross-check every claim that he has made.

According to Sharma, the man, who identified himself as Mohammad Amir from Hasilpur tehsil in Bahawalpur district, told security officials during his preliminary interrogation that he had been in touch with a Mumbai-based woman he met on Facebook. Over time, they became good friends, exchanged numbers and also decided to get married.

Mohammad Amir told officials that Indian authorities had declined his request for a visa and that is why he planned to cross the border fence to meet the girl.

Officials said they have not approached the woman in Mumbai yet. This will be done only if required after Amir’s joint interrogation.

It is unlikely that Amir will be able to meet the Mumbai woman for now.

“If the story narrated by the youth is true and there is nothing suspicious, then he will be handed over back to Pakistan,” Sharma was quoted as saying.
