    Kanpur (Utttar Pradesh) : Finally Shamsuddin returned home in Kanpur on Sunday night after spending 28 years in Pakistan.

    It took a while for him before emotions burst out. When they did, there was no stopping. Tears rolled down his weather-beaten cheeks, melting away years of torture and torment.

    Shamsuddin , who served time in jail on charges of espionage in Pakistan, had left his home more than two decades ago after a dispute with some family members.

    He reached Pakistan at the invitation of an acquaintance and stayed there. He managed to fake documents to get citizenship and then called his family over and started his business.

    After a few years Shamsuddin sent his family back. He was caught when he went to get his passport renewed and was sent to jail for forging documents.

    When he completed his sentence, he was handed back to the Indian Army that kept him in the mandatory quarantine.

    He was finally brought to Kanpur on Sunday night. After a brief meeting with the family, he was taken away by the Kanpur police for routine questioning.

    "For us, it is important that he is back. The past is behind us and we will look for a new future," said his younger brother Fahim.
