Two men from Pakistan were caught near Zagreb, while they were hiding in a truck. They made noise because the truck had stopped and the driver saw them and the police was called. The police arrived after one hour, and took the two men to the police station. Pictures were taken. They asked for asylum, police officers said yes, but after 7 hours, they were pushed back to Batrovci, at Serbian-Croatian border, together with another couple.
