BSF, Pak Rangers hold discussion to ensure peace, tranquility at the border

ANI  |  Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India] 

A Sector Commander level meeting between the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Paksitan Rangers took place at the international boundary in R.S. Pura sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.

The BSF team was led by Deputy Inspector General (DIG) P.S. Dhiman and Brigadier Amjad Hussain led the Pakistan Rangers.

The meeting was held in cordial atmosphere and both commanders committed to each other to ensure peace and tranquility at the border.

The meeting took place after Indian Director-General of Military Operations (DGMO) A.K. Bhatt had a telephonic conversation with his Pakistani counterpart regarding the movement of terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC).

During the conversation, the Pakistani DGMO was informed about the repatriation of two nationals from the other side of the border apprehended in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir.

However, Pakistan rejected Indian concerns asking the Indian army to share evidence regarding the same.

The duo will be repatriated through the Wagah border on March 10.
