Pakistan raises issue of two held Pakistani children with India
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria has said that Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi has raised the issue of two Pakistani children, who mistakenly crossed into other side of the border, with Indian authorities.
In a statement on Tuesday, he said the Indian authorities have acknowledged that the little boys named Faisal Hassan and Ahsan Khursheed mistakenly crossed the border.
This should be noted that two Pakistani youngsters had accidentally crossed the border and entered India. Indian forces have reportedly put them in jail on mere allegation of guiding Uri attackers. Pakistan High Commission in India has expedited efforts to recover the boys.
