Jammu: Two minor sisters from Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK), who were detained after they inadvertently crossed the Line of Control (LoC) into Poonch district, were repatriated on Monday, officials said.

Laiba Zabair (17) and her younger sister Sana Zabair (13), residents of Kahuta Tehsil in PaK, were detained on Sunday after being spotted moving into this side by Indian troops.

Two girls of Abbasspur, Tehsil Forward Kahuta of PaK, “who had inadvertently crossed into Indian side in Poonch, have been repatriated from the Chakan Da Bagh (CDB) crossing point today,” a defence spokesman said.

The handover of the sisters took place at the CDB point in the presence of civilian and military officials of Pakistan. They were given gifts and sweets by the Indian Army as a goodwill gesture, he said.
