“There was sloganeering and unruly conduct by the spectators from the Pakistani side. There were some reports about pelting of stones also … We called a flag meeting with the Rangers and told them about the issue,” a senior BSF official said.
The situation during the flag lowering ceremony was apparently quite tense. The retreat ceremony is held every evening where both the sides lower their national flags and shut the gates in the presence of the public.
Tension is running high between the two countries following the terror attack on an Army camp in Uri and subsequent surgical strikes on terror launch pads by India in PoK.
