Anubhav Misri
POONCH, Aug 14: Amid series of ceasefire violations at Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB), Indian troops here did not forget to greet their Pakistani counterparts on their Independence Day and today presented a packet of sweets to Pakistan army.

Indian Army officers today wished their PAK counterparts ‘Happy Independence Day’ at Rah-e-Milan. However, the reflection of tension between both armies was clearly visible from both sides as officers to the rank of Major exchanged sweets.

It is worthwhile mention here that earlier Commanding Officers of the unit from both sides (India and Pakistan) exchange sweets at Rah-e-Milan on the eve of national festivals. Today officers of the rank of Major from both sides exchanged sweets which clearly reflect all is not well and troops of both sides are working to improve their relations.

However, Indian Army officers restricted media persons to a particular place at Rah-e-Milan and not even interacted with media present there.

Wishing Happy Independence Day to PAK Army, Indian Army officers gave sweets and gifts to their PAK counterparts on the eve of their Republic Day while PAK Army also gave sweets to Indian Army officials present there.

The sweets were exchanged at Chakkan-Da-Bagh at 10 AM in which Major S Manhas and Captain SS Sehgal of 21 Bihar represented Indian Army and Major Umer Gul of 653 Mujahid and Major Yasin and Captain Tanveer represented Pak Army.

Indian Army presented a pack of gift comprising sweets and dry fruit to their PAK counterpart s.

Interacting with KTNS on the sidelines of the sweets exchange ceremony, Major Umer Gul of Pak Army said that they are very thankful to Indian Army for this gesture. “I am very happy that our souring relations are now become sweeter. I wish that we will carry on these relations with Indians in future,” he added.
