In second flag meeting between BSF and Pakistan rangers in as many days, the Indian side on Monday lodged a fresh protest against the recent ceasefire violation along the border, in which a jawan and a civilian were injured.

A Commandant-level flag meeting was held between Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers this evening to discuss the issues of firing on the border besides other issues, a senior BSF officer said.

In the sixth case of ceasefire violation, the Pakistani troops had resorted to unprovoked firing along the Indo-Pak border on Saturday injuring a BSF jawan and a villager.

The Indian side lodged a strong protest over the firing incident. However, the officer said that the Pakistani troops denied their role in the firing.

A team of 11 BSF officers led by the Commandant 68 BSF Battalion, N S Aujla held the flag meeting with 10 member Pak Rangers team at Border Pillar number 15 in Pansar Post along the International Border in Samba district today.

BSF had lodged protest over the ceasefire violation with Pakistani rangers yesterday as well during a company commander level flag meeting on International Border (IB) in Pansar forward belt in Hiranagar belt.
