The man, in his early thirties, identified himself as Raju, he said.

He tried to enter Kutch district from neighbouring Sindh province in Pakistan early this morning when a BSF patrol team caught him, the official said, adding that he tried to cross over through a patch in an unfenced area between border pillars 1085 and 1090.

"The man was being questioned. The BSF would later hand him over to the local Khavda police for further action," he added.
