Lahore: An India-made anti-tank mine was recovered from Nullah Dek near Kartarpur corridor in Pakistan’s Punjab province, an official said Wednesday.

According to District Civil Defence Officer (Narowal) Muhammad Asim Wahla, labourers digging out sand from the Nullah Dek found the 14-pound anti-tank mine on Tuesday and informed police about it.

Police reached the spot and called the bomb disposal squad of the civil defence that defused the mine.

Nullah Dek enters Pakistan’s territory from India in Tehsil Zafarwal, in Narowal district, some 125-km from Lahore.

The official said the anti-tank mine was made in India and such mines are sometimes found in the Dek after being pushed by the strong water currents of the Nullah from Indian side.
