Bimal Narjee a 16-year-old Assamese boy who crossed the Indian border and entered the Pakistan territory by mistake in August last year has been sent back to India on Tuesday. The Pakistani Rangers did so after checking and verifying the boy’s official documents and as a gesture of sympathy.
This is not the first case of border crossings among the two countries. On December 2018 India released two Pakistani residents through Wagah Border namely Mohammed Imran Qureshi Warsi and Abdullah. Abdullah was caught at Atari Border and his reason to cross the border was to meet film star and his childhood hero Shahrukh Khan in which he failed.
Warsi, on the other hand, had come to India to meet his relatives in Kolkata and later married a girl while staying in India for more than 4 years after the expiration of his Visa. Warsi was found guilty of forging documents in 2008 and was sentenced by a local court under under the Official Secrets Act and Passport Act
