A minor child who had been at the center of a tug of war between his estranged parents living in two different countries - India and Pakistan - for eleven months was finally reunited with the distraught mother.
The happy ending happened on Saturday through an Indian court order at the border town of Wagah, 30 kilometers from Lahore, the capital of largest Pakistani province, Punjab.
Indian authorities handed over five-year-old Iftikhar to her Pakistani mother Rohina, who was accompanied by Pakistani officials at the border crossing of Wagah, bringing a climax to the legal and diplomatic battle between the two hostile neighbors.
The boy’s Indian father Gulzar, separated from his mother after a 14-year marriage, secretly taking him to his hometown of Jammu in the Indian-controlled Kashmir in March 2016.
Rohina, a resident of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani-controlled Kashmr, moved the Indian court through the assistance of Pakistani High Commission in Delhi.
