A group of 10 men, all from Pakistan, crossed the Bosnian border to Croatia from Velika Kladuša. When they were 20 kilometres inside Croatia, walking on the Road A1, they were detected and caught by the Croatian police. The group of police officers that found them were around 20, in 2 vans and 3 cars.
All men expressed their intention to apply for asylum in Croatia, but the police rejected their wish answering: “No asylum”.
The police officers told the men to give them their mobile phones and money. The police took the men’s phones and money but did not return them back.
Then, the men were driven to the Bosnian border, close to Šturlić, where they arrived around 1 a.m. At the border, the police told the men to leave the car in groups of 2. As soon as they left the car, they were attacked by the policemen with sticks. Two police officers attacked each man, one after another.
