February 15, 2013 10:32 IST

The Pakistan Army has said that one of its soldiers had inadvertently crossed the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir and contact was being established with Indian authorities for his return.

The Pakistani soldier lost his way on Thursday afternoon and inadvertently crossed the LoC in Khoi Ratta sector, military officials said on Thursday.

Contact was being established with Indian authorities for the soldier's return, the officials said.

Such incidents had happened on both sides in the past and were sorted out mutually, they said.

The incident occurred even as the two sides traded fresh charges of ceasefire violations along the 742-km Line of Control.
