Two young boys from Pakistan Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (PoJK) who had inadvertently crossed over the Line of Control (LOC) on 23 May 2017 and then apprehended by an Indian Army patrol, were yesterday returned safely through the Tithwal Crossing Point in Tangdhar Sector and with this gesture, yet again the Indian Army is earning massive praise.

As per the information, 13 years old Wasalat Khan son of Naseer Khan and 12 years old Mohd Iftikhar Khan son of Mohd Fareed, both belonging to Simari Village in PoJK, had lost their way and entered the Indian side of LC where, despite the prevailing tense situation, the Army’s patrol displayed remarkable restraint and professionalism in securing the boys from the danger zone without any harm.

As a goodwill gesture, the young boys were treated with utmost care and provided with all medical and other administrative provisions during their stay here and were today handed over to PoJK officials in the presence of officials from J&K Police, Civil Administration and a large gathering of villagers on both sides. India and Pakistan are at loggerheads for the latter’s involvement in terrorism across the world.
