LAHORE: The Indian Border Security Force (BSF) will hand over a 10-year-old boy to the Pakistani authorities at the Wagah Border, The Express Tribune has learnt. The boy, Ghulam Hussain Jumman, was arrested along with other fishermen who had mistakenly crossed the unmarked maritime border along the controversial Sir Creek between Indian state of Gujrat and Pakistan’s Sindh province. Jumman, a resident of Karachi, has been released as a goodwill gesture, while the rest of the people on board the boat he was fishing in remain in Indian custody. Edhi Foundation Lahore spokesman Yuonis Bhatti said they have received a letter from authorities concerned to receive the boy at Wagah border.
