Pakistan will reportedly be releasing Indian Army Sepoy Chandu Babulal Chohan as a "goodwill gesture", who inadvertently crossed the Line of Control on September 29, 2016, soon after the surgical strikes.

Chohan is scheduled to cross the Wagah-Border, Punjab, at 3pm, following which he'll be debriefed and will undergo a medical examination.

Indian government has been making efforts to get him back ever since.
