Pakistan finally does something good!
Pakistan authorities today released Indian soldier Chandu Chavan, who inadvertently had crossed the border last year.
Chavan was returned at 2.30 PM via Wagah Border in Punjab, Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in an official statement. He will be debriefed and a special medical check-up will be carried out.
Chavan, a 22-year-old soldier from 37 Rashtriya Rifles, had mistakenly crossed the de-factor border in Kashmir hours after India’s surgical strikes on terrorist bases across the LoC.
‘As a gesture of goodwill and in continuation of our efforts to maintain peace and tranquility along LOC, Sepoy Chandu Babulal Chavan has been convinced to return to his own country and will be handed over to Indian authorities at Wagha Border on humanitarian grounds,’ Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
