IIOJK juvenile board orders release of two Pakistani minors



The Juvenile Justice Board in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) ordered the immediate release of two Pakistani children on Friday after the minors crossed the Line of Control (LoC).

The two children, 14-year-old Asmad Ali and 16-year-old Khayyam Maqsood, had accidentally crossed the LoC and are now lodged in a juvenile center in the Poonch district of occupied Kashmir.

The board declared that the children had committed a crime by illegally crossing the border. However, ordered their release due to being minors. The relevant Indian authorities were directed to send back the two Pakistani minors after fulfilling the legal requirements.

The two children were also directed to submit an affidavit declaring to the board that they would not repeat their mistake in the future.

Asmad Ali is a resident of Rawal Kot, Azad Kashmir, and crossed the LoC on November 28 last year while chasing his pet pigeons.
