Pakistan recognised the body of a trained Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist who had infiltrated into Jammu and Kashmir and died during treatment after being captured along the Line of Control (LoC) in Naushera sector of Rajouri district on August 21 for the first time in more than two decades.
The Indian Army handed over the body of Tabarak Hussain (32), a resident of Sabzakote in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, to Pakistan in the presence of police and civil officers at the Chakan Da Bagh crossing point on the LoC in Poonch district, two days after he died of cardiac arrest at a military hospital in Rajouri.
The Indian forces shot at Hussain and seriously injured him. He was eventually sent to a military hospital in Rajouri, where he underwent surgery during which three units of blood were donated to save his life.
Hussain revealed that he was assigned by a Pakistani intelligence agency to scout advanced positions in the Naushera sector. He told officials that a colonel from Pakistan intelligence had given him 30,000 Pakistani rupees to strike the advanced positions of the Indian Army.
