Amid tension in Hiranagar, Samba and RS Pura sectors along the LOC, BSF has decided not to exchange sweets with Pakistan Rangers at Attari-Wagah border on Sunday. In a departure from tradition, the BSF has decided that it will neither offer nor accept sweets and gifts from the Pakistani Rangers.
“There is going to be no exchange this year at the Wagah border. Neither are we going to offer nor will we accept any gift,” said BSG IG Punjab Frontier Anil Paliwal. He suggested that the ‘prevailing situation’ along the border prevented the BSF from showing any “soft gestures” to the Pakistani Rangers.
Pakistan armed forces violated ceasefire in Hiranagar, Samba and RS Pura sectors along the LOC on Sunday morning. Pakistan has been on the offensive ever since the surgical strikes took place on terror launchpads situated at Pakistan occupied Kashmir (Pok) after the Uri attacks on Indian armed forces. Four Pakistani posts had been destroyed in massive firing assault along LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, army sources said on Saturday. The sources also added that heavy casualties were inflicted on the Pak side.
