Posted just 4 days ago, they suspect that he is Muslim from across the border.
Looks like SSG/BAT soldier. Brutal beating might had commenced before police arrived.
Right! He doesn't look like a smuggler but a trained terrorist. He should be hung by his balls so he starts singing like a canary.
Seems he is on a recce.
Looks like he failed to pay up...
What was that belt?...........
Magazine / ammo belt, perhaps?

The Border Security Force (BSF) on Monday claimed to have recovered 13.26kg heroin from the border outposts (BOPs) of Daoke and Bharopal on the India-Pakistan border in Amritsar district.
The contraband was contained in 13 packets, the BSF said. BSF deputy inspector general (DIG) JS Oberoi said taking advantage of dense fog on Monday morning, some people threw the contraband from the Pakistan side to Indian farmland.
Addressing a press conference at the BSF camp, the DIG said, “At around 9am, troops at the Daoke border outpost observed some Pakistan smugglers across the fence. During search, we recovered 12.77kg heroin in 12 packets.”
“In the second incident, the BSF troops noticed some suspicious movement across the fence at the Bharopal BOP at about 10 am. The troops challenged the Pakistani smugglers who postured aggressively. The troops fired on them but they managed to escape taking advantage of heavy fog.”
He said after the firing, the BSF team during a search operation recovered 560-gm heroin (1 packet).
BSF on alert: DIG
The DIG said since fog decreases the capability of equipment on the border, manpower has been increased.
“We have intelligence reports that some anti-national elements may increase activities in Punjab and the BSF is on an alert and has already increased vigil on the Punjab border with Pakistan,” he said.
“Due to foggy weather, we have got operational guidelines for strengthening the border patrol,” he said.
A border farmer on radar
The DIG said 12 packets of contraband were seized from the land of a farmer, Hari Singh, from across the fencing line.
A first information report (FIR) will be lodged in his name and the Punjab police will investigate the matter to confirm whether the farmer is involved in such activities.”
“We have information that someone from Hari Singh’s family is involved in heroin smuggling but the police will investigate the matter.”

All feasible stretches along International borders with Pakistan and Bangladesh have been approved for erection of barbed wire fence. In addition, a stretch of 10 km has also been approved for erection of fence on border with Myanmar.
The area of responsibility of 382 BOPs located along Indo-Bangladesh Border and Indo-Pakistan Border have been assessed as vulnerable on the basis of incidents of crimes related to cattle smuggling, phensedyl smuggling, FICN smuggling, illegal migration and attacks on BSF personnel by miscreants.
The Government has adopted a multi-pronged approach for security arrangements at the Indo-Pakistan Border (IPB) and Indo-Bangladesh Border (IBB). The arrangements include deployment of Border Security Force (BSF), construction of border fence, construction of border roads, installation of floodlights, construction of border out posts (BOPs), introduction of Hi-Tech surveillance equipments, providing weapons and Specialised Vehicles to Security Forces, etc.
