Pakistani Version

On 21 August, two local farmers from Pakistan-controlled Kashmir – Muhammad Nazeem and Khalil Ahmed accidentally crossed the LOC near Hajipir while they had gone for grass cutting. Islamabad says that the Indian Army and media are projecting these two innocent Pakistanis as terrorists.

On 27 August the incident was discussed by military authorities during weekly hotline contact.

Later, on 2nd September Indian media fabricated the facts and declared both innocent individuals as members of a proscribed organisation.

On 3rd Sep, Indian authorities were once again informed during weekly hotline contact regarding false Indian media story despite the prior exchange of information and facts. It was assured by the Indian side that due legal process was in place and the outcome will be shared with Pakistani authorities.

In complete disregard to formal sharing on the incident, a false and fabricated story was presented by the Indian Army on 4 September portraying the individuals as terrorists, claims Islamabad.

Islamabad claims that the detained individuals have been forced to give a confessional statement under the compulsion of Indian Army that they were trained in Pakistan and belonged to Rawalpindi. It is to note that both individuals are inadvertent crossers, local farmers and resident of Village Terraban (Hillan) along LOC and not Rawalpindi.
