Army repatriates two girls from PoK who crossed border accidentally

POONCH(JAMMU AND KASHMIR): The Indian Army on Monday repatriated two girls from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) who had inadvertently crossed over to the Indian side across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir‘s Poonch district, said Indian Army officials.
“We lost our way and entered Indian territory. We feared that Army personnel will beat us up but they treated us in a good manner. We had thought that they would not allow us to go back but today we are being sent home. People are good here,” said Laiba Zabair.
Around 8:30am on Sunday, 17-year-old Laiba Zuber and her 13-year-old sister Sana Zubair, resident of Bandi Abbaspur, Kahuta, Poonch were apprehended by the Indian army when they were found moving inside the Indian side of the Line of Control from Rangar Nala.
The Indian Army found that the girls had inadvertently crossed over while they were walking from their home in Abbaspur to Tattapani via Rangar Nala.

On detecting the movement of the girls on the Indian side of the LOC, Indian troops exercised great care and restraint to ensure their safety and security, sources said.
The Indian Army established contact with the Pakistani side and repatriated the two girls at 11:30 am today via Chakan-Da-Bagh and reunited them with their families.
