A 12-year-old boy from Pakistan- occupied Kashmir (PoK) has been detained on Saturday by the Indian Army after he crossed over the Indian territory along the Line of Control (LoC) in Rajouri district, Jammu and Kashmir.
“A patrol of the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC) apprehended a 12-year-old intruder from Pakistan- occupied Kashmir (PoK) who had crossed over to this side of LoC late last evening in Nowshera sector of Rajouri district,” a defence spokesman said.
According to the spokesperson, the boy is the son of a retired Baloch Regiment soldier of Dunger Pel village in PoK. He was found moving suspiciously near the LoC on the Indian side, he said.
On the other hand, “the Army strongly suspects that the boy was sent by the Pakistan Army along with terrorists to probe infiltrations routes and patrol the track of the army,” reports PTI.
