12-year-old boy from PoK detained by army near LoC in J-K’s Rajouri


MUZAFFARABAD, MAY 05, (DNA) – A 12-year-old boy from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) has been detained by the Indian Army after he crossed over into Indian territory along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, an army official said on Saturday.

The army strongly suspects that he was sent by the Pakistan Army along with terrorists to conduct a probe of infiltration routes and patrol the track of the army.

“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.

The boy named Ashfaq Ali Chauhan, who is the son of a retired Baloch Regiment soldier of Dunger Pel village in PoK, was found moving suspiciously near the LoC on the Indian side, he said.=DNA
