Original Report

A minor from Afghanistan was walking near Rugvica, Croatia, when the police caught him. Two police officers took him to the police station where they took a picture of him, wrote down his name and the names of his family (he told them that he was a minor, but the police did not write it down). He asked for asylum but they rejected it. He was pushed back to Batrovci.
