Srinagar: The parents of a seven-year-old Pakistani boy whose body was recovered from a river in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district have appealed to the authorities to send his body home. The boy, who hailed from Gilgit in Pakistan, was pulled out on Tuesday from the Kishenganga river in Gurez town, police sources said.

His parents posted an appeal on the social media requesting authorities to return his body. Kishenganga river is called Neelam river in Pakistan.

In June 2019, a mother-daughter duo were rescued by Marcos (marine commandos) of the Indian Navy in Wullar Lake in Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district after the boat they were rowing capsized in the lake, police sources said. "Indian Navy's Marcos force immediately swung into action and rescued both the mother and the daughter from drowning in the Lake. The timely rescue mission undertaken by the navy commandos has been appreciated by the locals of the area," said the sources.
