State advocate general Darius Khambata on Monday informed the Bombay high court that since the Parliament considers Pakistan-occupied Kashmir part of Indian territory, if Siraj Khan was born there, he would be an Indian citizen. Khambata made his submission before a bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and A R Joshi, which said in that case the criminal prosecution against him would have to go. Khambata said that would be correct, but provided the Centre agreed with its stand. The HC has now asked the Centre to give its say on whether POK is part of India and adjourned the matter by a week. Wadala resident Khan (27) had moved HC seeking his return home and his counsel Syed Ejaz Abbas Naqvi on Monday said his client had "a natural right to visit his parents and hometown irrespective of the state and address. Unintentional entry into Indian territory by a juvenile cannot be an offence."
