Jammu: In the backdrop of ceasefire violations by Pakistan, BSF held a flag meeting with Pakistani rangers and raised the issue of various infiltration attempts and cross border firing along the international border in the last six months.

The meeting was held along the Indo-Pak border at Octroi border outpost, 40 kms from here, last evening.

Besides the issue of cross-border firing along the border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua sectors of Jammu frontier, the BSF took up the killing of its Deputy Inspector General (DIG) O P Tanwar in an IED planted by militants and attacks on various border outposts.

Pak Rangers denied their involvement in the incidents in the meeting, which was held for nearly one and half hour.

BSF authorities warned that there should be no such incidents in the future, failing which they will be forced to take strong action.

At the meeting, the BSF side was represented by DIG Vasudev of Indreswar Nagar sector and DIG J P Sangwan, while Brigadier Masood, Lt Commandant Abdul Khalid, Major Karim, Major Sayeed and Intelligence officer Zulfikar represented Pak Rangers.
