    The Indian Army ‘broke protocol’ along Line of Control and handed over the body of a child to Pakistan after he had fallen into a river.

     

    The body of a seven-year-old boy was retrieved from Kishanganga River in north-western part of Jammu and Kashmir by Indian Army troops in Gurez sector yesterday.


    Pakistan was informed over the hotline.


    On humanitarian grounds, Army offered to hand over body at Gurez itself, instead at one of the established meeting points.
