An Indian boy who reached Lahore without travel documents was detained by Pakistani authorities and handed over to counter-terrorism officials for questioning, police sources said.

The boy, who gave his name as Mohammed Aslam, reached Lahore from India by Samjhauta Express and was arrested at the Lahore railway station, the source told IANS.

Only Indian currency was recovered from Aslam’s possession. An official said it was being probed how the boy, whose age was not given, reached the Punjab capital despite high security at various posts.
