Mohammad Abdullah a boy of 11 was apprehended by an Indian Army on June 24 in Degwar area of Poonch and was handed over to J&K Police on the same day. The Authorities handed him over to the Pakistani police four days after he inadvertently crossed into the Indian side in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.
The police carried out the necessary formalities for his return. He was believed to be released on humanitarian grounds, so a spokesman said. This was solely based on his young age and to boost the confidence-building measures between India and Pakistan.
