BSF personnel offered Diwali sweets to their Pakistani counterparts on the Indo-Pak border but very few of them accepted it.
BSF, DIG, Ravi Gandhi said that, “BSF personnel offered sweets to Pakistani rangers at 14 outposts. However, Pak rangers at only 4 outposts accepted the sweets”.
The Border Security Force in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir did not offer sweets to the Pak Rangers in the wake of repeated ceasefire violations. The BSF jawans celebrated Diwali by decorating the border areas with earthen lamps.
