Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent
weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.
One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft
er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.
He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.
While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate
d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron
tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.
Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki
stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.
Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.
The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be
ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.
Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit
y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.
