Public entry at Attari-Wagah border retreat ceremony suspended

Amritsar: The public viewing of the daily flag lowering retreat ceremony at the Attari-Wagah joint check post (JCP) at Attari near Amritsar in Punjab has been suspended indefinitely as a precautionary measure against Coronavirus, officials said on Thursday January 6.

The public will not be allowed at the Attari-Wagha JCP, around 30 km from here, till further orders, a Border Security Force (BSF) official told IANS.

Last year also, the BSF had suspended the retreat ceremony owing to the pandemic.

India and Pakistan have been traditionally hosting the flag-lowering ceremonies at the border for many years and the event is attended by a huge number of people from both countries.
