Pak troops thank Indian Army for repatriating soldier
Srinagar: Pakistani troops have thanked the
Indian Army for its gesture in repatriating a soldier who had
inadvertently crossed into North Kashmir last month.
"Thank you very much. We appreciate this friendly
gesture. We offer thanks for this and I am sure this gesture
is actually a true reflection of the ceasefire agreement,"
Pakistani delegation leader Lt Col Mazhar said at a flag
meeting held on December 30.
The Pakistani jawan -- Sarfaraz Ahmed of Mujahid brigade,
a paramilitary force -- was handed over to Pakistani
authorities after the Army was convinced that he had
accidentally strayed into Indian territory.
An Army spokesman said today that the Pakistani soldier
was also presented a watch, five kg of sweets and dry fruits,
a hand-stitched carpet and a Quran stand.
