Pakistan Rangers to visit Indian BSF this month

For talks with their Indian counterpart Border Security Force (BSF), a high-level delegation of officers of the Pakistan Rangers will visit India later this month, Indian media reported on Sunday.

According to the reports, the Rangers delegation, led by Maj Gen Bilal Akbar (DG Rangers Sindh) and Maj Gen Khan Tahir Javed Khan (DG Rangers Punjab), is expected to travel to India via the Wagah-Attari border on March 25 and will hold talks for five days with their Indian counterparts at the BSF headquarters in New Delhi.

“The Pakistan Rangers are arriving in India for the annual DG-level talks for five days from March 25 to March 29. The last time the two sides met was in December 2013 when the BSF travelled to Lahore,” the Press Trust of India quoted a top Indian Home Ministry official as saying.

The Indian side will be led by BSF Director General D K Pathak.
