Army to repatriate 3 PoK boys detained on LoC in Poonch

Jammu, Aug 20 (KINS ) Army will repatriate three boys from the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, apprehended along Line of Control in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“At around 1545 hours on 18 August, Indian army personnel deployed along the LoC through a well coordinated and established surveillance system observed some suspicious movement,” a senior army officer from Krishna Ghati Brigade told reporters at a press conference in Poonch on Friday.

He said that immediately a cordon was established and three individuals were apprehended, adding, “they were young children between the age group of 9 and 17 years.”

He said that they had inadvertently crossed the LoC while carrying fishing activity. “There were four Children but one of them returned back and the Army did not open fire at him,” he said.

During questioning they claimed that they are from Troti Darmshall and Chattra area which are located across the LoC. These children were taken care of compassionately by the Army and provided requisite provisions for comfortable stay.

The trio has been identified as Danyal Malik (17) of Lassi Mang Chattra, Arbaz Rahim (13) of Troti Chattra and Umair Rahim (9) of Troti Chattra.

The army officer said that these children will be repatriated to PoK as was done in case of Sana and Laiba, two young girls who had crossed the LoC under similar circumstances on December 6, and Haider Ali, a mentally challenged person, on December 31 last year.
