Pakistani schoolboys arrested over Uri attack reach Lahore

Lahore: Two Pakistani schoolboys who were arrested by Indian forces last year for their alleged involvement in Uri attacks, have been returned to Pakistan on Friday.

Families of both the boys named Ahsan Khursheed and Faisal Hussain Awan received their children at Wagah border, Lahore.

Earlier, the boys were transferred to the Amritsar Attari border where they were received by personnel of Pakistan High Commission, as reported by media sources.

The two boys lived in a village in Azad Kashmir located at an hour’s walk away from border line. They were detained by Indian Army after they were found roaming across Line of Control on September 21, 2016.

India, habitually, blamed Pakistan over Uri attacks of September 2016 and detained these youths and alleged that they were involved in attack which killed 19 Indian soldiers.

On Wednesday, National Investigation Agency (NIA) declared Pakistani students innocent as they found no linkage between militants and teens. NIA handed over them to Indian corps to send them to Pakistan.
