Two brothers from Pakistan and India—separated amid the partition riots in 1947—have now reunited at Kartarpur Corridor after 43 years, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday. 

One of them is a resident of Ranewal village of district Narowal while the other brother lives in India.

Both brothers got in touch through social media and finally, they met each other Thursday through the Kartarpur Corridor along with their families. 

Pertinent to note that the Kartarpur Corridor is a visa-free border crossing and religious corridor, connecting the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, near Lahore in Pakistan to Gurudwara Dera Baba Nanak, Gurdaspur district, Punjab, India. 

The crossing allows devotees from India to visit the gurdwara in Kartarpur, Pakistan, 4.7 kilometers (2.9 miles) from the India–Pakistan border on the Pakistani side without a visa.

On 26 Nov 2018, the foundation stone was laid down on the Indian side by Prime Minister Narendra Modi; two days later, then-Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan did the same for the Pakistani side. 

The corridor was completed for the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak, on 12 November 2019.
