Chandu, who inadvertently crossed the Line of control on September 29, 2016, was handed over to the Indian authorities at 2:30 pm today via Wagah Border in Punjab.

Chandu, a 22-year old soldier from 37 Rashtriya Rifles, had mistakenly crossed the de factor border in Kashmir, hours after India’s surgical strikes on terrorist bases across the LoC. He belongs to Borvihir village in Dhule district of Maharashtra.

Notably, Chandu’s grandmother suffered a cardiac arrest and died after the family was informed that he was captured by the Pakistan army.
