Amid growing hostilities between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the alleged killing of two Indian army soldiers at LoC by Pakistani army personnel, hunting of wild boars and rabbits along the Pakistani side of International Border by officer of Pak Rangers has Border Security Force (BSF) personnel deployed on Indian side of the border in Punjab in a rather catch 22 situation, with confusion about any probable firing from the Pakistani side.
"As per ground rules between the two countries, Pak Rangers and BSF are supposed to inform each other about any such activity to ensure that any unnecessary suspicion is not created. But, Pakistan never sounds an alert when their officers go hunting," BSF Inspector General (Punjab Frontier) Aditya Mishra said on Tuesday.
He added that despite the BSF taking up the matter with Pakistan at various meetings, Pak Rangers did not sound an alert about any such activity.
A BSF official said, "A few days ago, around 70 to 80 rounds were fired along the International border on the Pakistani side as some officers of Pak Rangers were out hunting. BSF personnel got alert only to find that the Pakistani officers were out hunting, and were firing in the process".
