Army sends back both PoK girls home


Jammu, December 7: Army troops on Monday repatriated two girls from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir who had inadvertently crossed over to the Indian side from across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district.

Identified as Laiba Zabair, 17, and Sana Zabair, 13, both residents of village Abbasspur in Forward Kahuta tehsil, had entered Poonch on Sunday morning. Both the girls were repatriated from Chakan Da Bagh crossing point in Poonch, said Army PRO Lt Colonel Devender Anand.

Before returning home, Laiba Zabair said that after they were caught by army troops, they apprehended that they may beat them. However, the army troops treated them well and made efforts for their early return to the native place. People on this side of the border are very nice, she said.
