Ongoing tension in India’s border with Pakistan, especially in Kashmir is unprecedented. The current standoff had followed a ‘terrorist’ attack on a military camp in Uri and subsequent ‘surgical strikes’ carried out by Indian forces.

Despite repeated ‘provocations’ and ‘violations’ of cease fire agreement by Pak troops, Border Security Force (BSF) of India showed what it would take to become gentlemen by ‘safely’ returning a Pakistani boy who accident crossed over into Indian territory.

According to reports, the BSF on Monday handed over a 12-year boy to Pakistani authorities after he crossed to the Indian side. The boy had unknowingly crossed into India in search water to quench his thirst. Authorities have identified him as Mohammad Tanveer.

BSF had picked up Tanveer from a border area near Dona Tely Mal in Punjab on Sunday evening.

BSF confirmed that the boy “inadvertently” crossed the International Border (IB) and had come to the Indian side of the border looking for a tube well to drink water from.

Officials said that the BSF took care of the boy and kept him overnight at the camp before handing him back on Monday morning so that he could return to his village Dhari in the Kasur district of Pakistan.
