After exchanging small arms and automatic weapons fire along the international border for one and a half month, both India as well as Pakistan will be holding a flag meeting in Pargwal sector near Akhnoor on Wednesday afternoon.
Officials sources said that the request for a flag meeting at the commandant/wing commander level in Pargwal area came from Rangers. However, it is difficult to relate it to the ongoing incidents of ceasefire violation along the international border as they have not disclosed any agenda for the meeting, they added.
Significantly, Pakistani Rangers had been resorting to unprovoked firing and mortar shelling not only on the BSF border posts, but also civilian areas along the international border in R S Pura and Arnia sectors for the last 45 days. With firing having spread to adjoining Ramgarh and Kanachak areas as well, the Director General of BSF, D K Pathak, had during his tour of border areas on Tuesday described the Pakistani firing during the last 45 days as heaviest after 1971.
However, there has been no incident of ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the last two days.
The continued Pakistani firing has already led people from various villages migrate from their native places to safer places in R S Pura and even Jammu city. The government schools in border areas are also closed in view of incidents of ceasefire violation from across the border.
