LAHORE: India on Friday released two Pakistani boys, who were accused of aiding the September 18 Uri attack. They were handed over to Pakistan army at Wagah Border.
The teenagers – Faisal Husain Awan and his school-friend Ahsan Khursheed – had inadvertently crossed the Line of Control. They were later arrested and Indian media claimed that they were from a militant organization.
The Indian authorities investigated the matter but could not find any proof.
Their eyes covered with black blindfolds, the boys were handed over to Pakistan army today and were sent home at the end of 171 days in the custody of the Indian Army and India’s National Investigations Agency.
