Pakistan DGMO on Thursday acknowledged that Indian Army Jawan Chandu Chavan is in their custody, according to sources. On September 30, Chavan from 37 Rashtriya Rifles had inadvertently crossed over to the other side of the Line of Control following which Pakistan had been informed by the DGMO on the hotline.
His inadvertent crossing took place after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes across LoC destroying seven terrorist launch pads.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar earlier also said that a well-established mechanism through the DGMO has been activated to bring back Army jawan Chandu Babulal Chavan, who is in Pakistan’s custody after inadvertently crossing over.
