India, Pak troops hold flag meeting

September 18, 2009 16:07 IST

Amid tension along the border following firing from the Pakistani side, a flag meeting was held on Friday between the border guarding forces of the two countries to review the situation. Officials of the Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers held the flag meeting at Nikwol border outpost in Jammu and Kashmir's Khour belt to discuss the firing incidents on Thursday night and on Friday morning.

The Pakistani officials, however, denied the involvement of their men in the incidents, BSF sources said. They also denied the presence of militant camps inside Pakistani territory.

Two BSF jawans were injured in the firing on Thursday night while Indian forward posts came under fresh fire from across the border on Pargwal border in Jammu on Friday morning.

The BSF has increased surveillance along the border after these incidents and asked its personnel to take all precautions while patrolling.
