No exchange of sweets between India and Pakistan at Wagah border on Eid

AMRITSAR, With tension prevailing at the border, the traditional exchange of sweets between the troops of India and Pakistan along the Wagah border in Punjab on Eid has been called off.

Official sources said during a late evening flag meeting between the sector commanders of the Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers on Sunday, the other side refused to fix a proper time for the ceremony to be held on Monday.
"The Pakistan side refused the exchange of sweets on Eid today (Monday). They cited no reasons but it is understood that the prevailing tension along J&K border due to unprovoked firing incidents from the other side is the reason," the sources said. Hence, the BSF did not make any movement along the Wagah border and the border gates remained shut.
