BSF, Pak Rangers exchange sweets at Attari-Wagah border

New Delhi: The Border Security Force and its Pakistani counterpart Pak Rangers exchanged sweets on the occasion of the 73rd Republic day of India.

The exchange of sweets was suspended in the last two years because of the Covid-19 pandemic whereas earlier in 2018, the BSF skipped the tradition on January 26 over growing incidents of ceasefire violations across the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border.

Even in 2019, both border guarding forces of India and Pakistan did not exchange sweets and greetings on the occasion of Eid along the Attari-Wagah border as the Pakistan chose to skip the friendlier gesture at the border after the special status give to Jammu and Kashmir was revoked

Similarly, after the surgical strike in October 2016, the BSF did not offer sweets to Pakistan Rangers.
