The BSF instantly shared information with their counterparts across the border. In the afternoon, the Satluj Rangers said an identical body had been recovered and asked for a close relative to identify it.
It was mutually agreed upon by the security forces of both sides to hand over the body tomorrow through the Attari-Wagah checkpoint.
The spot where the incident occurred is around 3-km upstream where the river enters Pakistan. Some eyewitnesses later told the police that they had seen Balwinder Singh being swept away in the river towards the Pakistan side.
