Shahid Wani::::::::

Pakistan today  repatriated two Kashmiri youth who had separately strayed into Pakistan from the Line of Control (LoC) more than two years ago, officials said.

Repatriation of 23-year old Bilal Ahmed and 24-year old Arfaz Yousuf was held at Kaman Bridge at the Chakothi-Uri crossing point, some 60 kilometres South of Muzaffarabad, in the presence of civilian and military officials from both sides.

Ahmed, a resident of Gurez village, and Yousuf, a resident of Kupwara in India-held Kashmir had crossed the LoC “by mistake” in July 2015 and January 2014 respectively, according to officials.
