As a goodwill gesture and Pakistan’s persistent efforts to maintain peace and tranquility along the Line of Control (LoC), the army has returned a resident of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) who had inadvertently crossed the LoC in Chirikot Sector on Tuesday.
According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Asmat Jan was handed over to occupied authorities at the Rawalakot-Poonch crossing points on humanitarian grounds.
Civil and military officials on both sides of the border were present on the occasion, the army’s media’s wing said.
In January, an Indian soldier, Chandu Babulal Chohan, was also handed over to Indian authorities at the Wagha border. The Pakistan Army captured Chohan along the LoC.
