WATCH: Chinese soldier Wang Qi returns home to emotional welcome
Beijing : Wang Qi, a Chinese veteran who was stranded in India for over 50 years, was reunited with his family in Shaanxi in China recently.
Wang, who joined the Chinese army in 1960, strayed into Indian territory one night soon after the 1962 war. He reached Xian, the provincial capital of his home province Shaanxi, last week.
He was handed over by the Indian Red Cross to the Indian Army in 1963 and spent time in jails in Assam, Ajmer and Delhi before his release was ordered by the Punjab and High Court in 1969.
He finally settled at Tirodi in Madhya Pradesh's Balaghat district and raised a family after marrying an Indian woman.
Wang, who is now 77, has returned to his home after more than five decades.
