A 17-year-old Pakistani boy Mubashar Bilal reunited with his family after almost two years after he inadvertently crossed Indian Territory in 2018.

According to the details, Mubashar was released from the juvenile home in Indian Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district on Tuesday morning and was later taken to Attari-Wagah border for handing him over to Pakistani authorities.

Mubashar was acquitted by the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) more than a year ago but faced a delay in his release due to diplomatic hurdles.

Indian Union Home Minister Amit Shah sanctioned the repatriation of Mubashar who was held by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) after he entered Indian territory in 2018.

Earlier, Pakistan has lodged strong protest with India on unprovoked firing by its security forces at the Line of Control (LoC) and summoned its high-ranking diplomat at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Director General South Asia and SAARC Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri summoned Indian Charge d’Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia at the Foreign Office and registered protest at the ceasefire violations in Kotkotera and Karela sectors, killing a civilian Muhammad Ishtiaque, 24.
