12 year old boy from PaK arrested near LoC in Rajouri

The Indian Army has conducted a counter-strike on Pakistani border posts along the Line of Control (LoC), days after two Indian soldiers were martyred and their bodies mutilated by Pakistani troops.

The Azad Jammu Kashmir (AJK) government on Saturday rejected Indian claims that a 12-year-old boy had crossed over into the Rajouri district of the India-held Kashmir (IHK) for the goal of 'spying'.

"Ashfaq was found moving suspiciously near the LoC and surrendered immediately on being challenged by the Indian Army patrol", the PTI said.

Relations between India and Pakistan have plummeted since a deadly attack on an Indian army base in the disputed region of Kashmir in September, 2016, which New Delhi blamed on Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Trump's Proposed Corporate Tax Cut: In Perspective
The percentage of the increase, the association noted, is more than half a percentage point below the 2 percent property tax cap. Still, the USA should be focusing on ways to boost business investment, which has fallen as a share of output in recent years.

Reports said that a Sikh regiment unit of the Indian army destroyed a Pakistani bunker near the LoC in less than 60 seconds. The sources said that it exposed Pakistan on the human rights front as to how a 12-year-old child was pushed by them into the Indian territory to probe LoC areas seeded with minefields in a highly militarised belt.

After preliminary questioning, the Army handed over the boy to the police for further investigation.

Defence Minister Arun Jaitley and top government officials had last week said that the Army had been given a free hand to avenge Pakistan's mutilation act.

India had alleged that the teenagers from Muzaffarabad had facilitated the Uri attackers. 23 security personnel were killed in the two-year period.
