Independence celebrations at the Wagah border – in pictures
In continuation of a traditional custom, Indian troops presented sweets to Pakistani troops at the Wagah border to celebrate their Independence Day.
Every year, border troops from the neighboring countries exchange sweets at the Wagah border on their respective Independence Days as well as other special occasions. The sweets were exchanged this year as well, despite tensions at the Line of Control and on diplomatic fronts.
Indian Border Security Force (BSF) Commandant Sudeep presented sweets and shook hands with Pakistan Rangers Wing Commander Bilal during a ceremony to celebrate India’s Independence Day at the India-Pakistan Wagah border post on Tuesday.
