Zishan Siddiqui was arrested on Thursday by the Border Security Force (BSF) in the Gujarat province. The security forces later handed the young man to the local police.

The student’s family had filed a complaint after he was missing. The complaint led the police to trace the guy and arrest him eventually. He left his home on a motorcycle as there was no public transport available due to the lockdown. He left his house in Osmanabad on July 11.

In Gujarat’s Rann of Kutch, Zishan Siddiqui’s motorcycle got stuck in the mud near the Dholavira village. He abandoned his bike there and carried on his remaining journey on foot. When the police found the abandoned motorcycle from Maharashtra, it alerted them. They later traced the student with the help of drone cameras.

Unfortunately, before his arrest at the hands of the BSF, Zishan Mohammad was only 1.5 km away from where the international border crossing between Indian and Pakistan lies. Zishan Muhammad had precisely the kind of adventure they make in Bollywood but less filmy and without random synchronized dances and melancholic songs. Upon his arrest, the young student was dehydrated.

He told the authorities that he had been unconscious for more than two hours. Zishan Siddiqui was not only trying to cross the border without a visa, but he also had no passport. We must appreciate his determination to meet the love of his life. Additionally, Zishan Siddiqui reached to the Rann of Kutch from Maharashtra’s Osmanabad with the help of Google Maps!

The climax of Zishan’s adventure

After his family’s complaint, the police checked Zishan Siddiqui’s belongings. His laptop and social media accounts were examined. The revealed that he was on his way to meet his girlfriend, who was a Pakistani. From there, it was easy for the police to trace him through his mobile phone.

Osmanabad police’s cyber wing department did the job and sent information to the Gujarat police. After his arrest, the Osmanabad police team has now been dispatched to take Zishan’s custody.

The Bollywood effect?
