He is responding well to treatment, a police officer reports, and the intrusion will be investigated and the perpetrator questioned as a result. This was his second encounter with law enforcement while breaching the Line of Control (LOC).

Officials claimed that nothing incriminating was found in his possession and that only after interviewing him would it be possible to determine why he tried to enter this side illegally.

"Tabarak Husain's pubic hairs and armpits are shaved and this is mostly done by terrorists when they are on a suicide attack as seen in the past," said a police official.
