Islamabad: Believe it or not but authorities
in Pakistan`s Punjab province have "arrested" a monkey after
it crossed the border with India, according to a media report
on Monday.

The monkey was captured by wildlife officials in
Bahawalpur, Express News channel reported.

Local residents initially tried to capture the monkey
after it entered Cholistan area of Bahawalpur district.

After the monkey evaded them, the people informed wildlife
officials, who captured the animal after a struggle.

The monkey was taken to Bahawalpur Zoo, where officials
named him Bobby.

In May last year, Indian police detained a pigeon and kept
it under armed guard after it was caught on an alleged spying
mission for Pakistan.

The bird was found by a resident of India`s Punjab state,
which borders Pakistan, and taken to a police station 40 km
from Amritsar.
