When an 11-Year-Old Crossed the LoC by Mistake, our Army Sent him Back with Sweets and New Clothes

Sameer Kayani, an 11-year-old boy from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) was handed over to the Pakistan Army after he unknowingly crossed borders and ended up in India.  

Sameer, son of Mohammad Rafiq, is a resident of Laswa area of Athmuqam in PoK. On Thursday, he crossed the LoC by mistake and ended up in India.

He was intercepted by the Indian army on this side. The soldiers deployed in the forward areas in India found him on July 2nd.

To make sure that he reached home safely, an urgent hotline message was sent to inform the Pakistan Army about his safety and wellbeing, as well as to request a flag meeting to return the Sameer.

The officials said, “The flag meeting was held at the Teetwal Crossing Point and the boy was handed over to representatives of Pakistan Army by the unit based at Tanghdar frontier area.”

But Sameer Kayani did not leave empty handed. The soldiers gave him sweets for his family and a new pair of clothes to take along with him. In talks about humanity in soldiers, Sameer’s story will surely be discussed.
