Border Security Force (BSF) troopers exchanged sweets with their Pakistan Rangers counterparts at the Attari-Wagah joint checkpost and celebrated Diwali on Wednesday along the border outposts of Punjab's international border with Pakistan.
Celebrations at some places took place on Tuesday night also.
In recent years, both sides have skipped the exchange of sweets and greetings on a few occasions due to tension between both countries following repeated firing across the Line of Control (LoC) and the international border and terrorism activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
The exchange of sweets takes place on Independence Day, national days and festivals like Eid and Diwali.
