India and Pakistan set to install new gates at Attari-Wagah border
India and Pakistan are set to install new gates at the Attari-Wagah border, where people from both sides throng every evening to watch the lowering of the national flags.
The daily Beating Retreat drill involves the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Pakistan Rangers clanging shut the gates for the night at the joint check post about 30 km from here, amid a synchronized display of aggression.
On the Indian side, a new U-shaped viewing gallery is also likely to be inaugurated soon.
Built at a cost of Rs 33 crore, the gallery can seat up to 25,000 visitors.
