JAMMU: Pakistan today handed over a 15-year-old boy who had crossed over to PoK from Poonch after a tiff with his parents.

Zulfikar Ali, a resident of Balakote area in Mendhar sector of Poonch district had crossed over to PoK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir) from Bhimber Gali sector earlier this week after his parents reprimanded him for stealing a mobile phone from a shop.

The parents came to know about the incident after they received his call, a senior police officer said. Zulfikar Ali was handed over by Pakistan authorities at Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point this afternoon, a defence  spokesman said.

He said the repatriation of the boy was a result of the Confidence Building Measures (CBM) between India and Pakistan. "The parents of the boy were grateful to the Indian Army for the efforts undertaken for his prompt repatriation", the spokesman said.
