BSF gives sweets to Pakistan Rangers

Attari (Punjab), Aug 15 : The Border Security Force (BSF) in Punjab Thursday offered sweets and fruits to Pakistan Rangers to mark India's 67th Independence Day.


BSF Deputy Inspector General M.F. Farooqi walked up to the zero line at the Attari-Wagah border, 30 km from Amritsar, and offered sweets, fruits and plants to his counterpart, Wing Commander Adnan Shiekh.

Both sides greeted each other at the brief informal ceremony.

Tension has mounted between India and Pakistan after Pakistani troops were accused of killing five Indian soldiers after sneaking into Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch sector last week.

The Pakistan Rangers gave sweets to the BSF Wednesday to mark Pakistan's Independence Day.

The midnight vigil and cultural functions by social groups, a regular feature near the Attari-Wagah border in recent years, have been postponed following the killing of the Indian soldiers.
