NRI Crashes SUV Into Wagah Border, Smashes Checkpoint And Almost Makes It Into Pakistan

An NRI, said to be undergoing psychiatric treatment, allegedly attempted to cross the Attari-Wagah Indo-Pak land route in his car on Monday, smashing a barrier near the international border before he was nabbed by Border Security Force personnel.

What a way to pay respect!

According to a senior BSF official, the NRI from Canada, who originally hails from Jalandhar and identified as Surinder Singh Kang, has told investigators that he wanted to pay obeisance at Nankana Sahib in Pakistan, but thought obtaining visa and going through other formalities would take time. According to Pakistani newspaper Dawn, his car "came to a stop after ramming into the Pakistani side of the border gate."

Pakistan's Punjab Rangers have written to India's  Border Security Forces (BSF) asking about this breach of security, official sources said. Pakistani authorities confiscated his car as it entered Pakistani territory, while BSF officers arrested him.
