Chandigarh, Oct 7 (IANS) The central government on Friday revoked its decision that led to the mass evacuation of villages in a 10-km belt along Punjab’s border with Pakistan.

Following this, the Punjab government has issued directions to allow the return of the people to their homes in the border villages in all six districts.

The evacuation was ordered on September 29 following the Indian Army’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC).
