The Army is planning to seek a flag meeting between the formation commanders of India and Pakistan in the Poonch sector. The meeting is likely to be attended by Brigadier-level officers from both sides, Army sources said here.

The 10th Brigade of the Indian Army is deployed in the Poonch sector under which three battalions are deployed. One of them is 13 Rajputana Rifles, whose two soldiers Lance Naiks Sudhakar Singh and Hemraj were killed by the Paksitan Army.

The area has been tense due to the recent incidents of ceasefire violations including the one which took place this evening in the Battal area of the same sector.

The DGMOs of the two sides had talked to each other after the January 8 incident in which the Pakistani troops killed the two Indian troopers and mutilated their bodies.

Flag-meetings are held by the armed forces deployed along the Line of Control to discuss and resolve issues between them.
