The BSF held its retreat ceremony at Wagah as usual on Thursday but turned away busloads of visitors who were arriving to watch it. The BSF also asked its personnel to step back from the zero line and take position behind the fence on the India-Pakistan border on Thursday afternoon. Cross-border trade at the international Check Post at Attari, however, remained normal throughout the day.

Samjhauta Express: Unlike on other days, BSF personnel did not cross the border gate while sending off the Samjhauta Express into Pakistan. The train left as usual with 150 passengers. Earlier, it brought 144 passengers from Pakistan.

Kabaddi: The Punjab government is yet to take a call whether to invite Pakistan’s men and women teams for the World Kabaddi Cup and Kabaddi League in October and November. Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal said. “We will look into it.”

Cultural exchange: A cultural exchange programme in Ajmer with a delegation from Pakistan was called off Thursday following protests by right-wing organisations. The programme involving three dozen students and teachers from Pakistan was scheduled at Mayo College from October 2 to 5.

School programme: In a school in Chandigarh, quite oblivious of the operation, a delegation of Pakistani girls and children of the school sang the Sholay song Yeh Dosti, Hum Nahin Chorengey.
