Crowds from Pakistani side allegedly threw stones at Indian side during the beating retreat ceremony at Wagah Border on Sunday. However, no one was injured in the incident.

According to sources, the BSF has asked for a flag meeting with their Pakistani counterparts over this issue. “No response from them yet,” said sources.

Even as the stones thrown from the Pakistan side landed in the Indian territory and a section of Pakistani spectators raised anti-India and pro-Kashmir slogans, the ceremony carried out by border guards of both the countries continued.

The BSF had on Thursday suspended the ceremony following escalation in tensions between both nuclear neighbours after the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) to destroy terror launch pads.

 

The retreat ceremony is carried out by border guards of India and Pakistan, the BSF and Pakistan Rangers, at the Attari-Wagah JCP at sunset every evening. The 30-minute ceremony is watched by hundreds of people from both countries daily.

The relation between the two countries soured after the Uri attack as India is making all effort to isolate Pakistan.
