Attari (Punjab): Breaking the traditional border ritual on Thursday, the Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers personnel did not exchange sweets and greetings on the occasion of Pakistan Independence Day along the Attari-Wagah Border in Punjab.

The guarding forces of both countries did not exchange sweets on the occasion of Eid also this year. Sources said that on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, the BSF personnel were willing to exchange sweets with their Pakistani counterparts but they did not revert in this regard.
