Two Pakistani teenagers, who were arrested last year by India over alleged involvement in Uri attack, returned home via Wagah Border on Friday.

The boys named Faisal Hussain Awan and Ahsan Khursheed were transferred to the Amritsar Attari border where they were received by Pakistan High Commission officials where immigration clearance was completed.

The announcement of their return came a day after the students were declared innocent y a report of India’s National Investigation Agency, stating that no evidence was found against them.

Their parents were present at Wagah Border to receive their children and thanked Pakistan’s government and officials in facilitating their release.

“I was in contact with the Indian media and Pakistan High Commission,” Faisal’s brother Dr Ghulam Mohiuddin said while talking to the media. “Finally it has been proven the boys did not have anything to do with the blame that was put on them.”

The two boys erroneously crossed the Line of Control in Azad Kashmir and were detained by the Indian Army on September 21, 2016, two days after an attack on Indian military’s brigade headquarters in Uri.
