AMRITSAR - India has cancelled the famous Joint Parade at Wagah-Attari border, stopping huge crowds to reach the venue on their side at the time when Pakistan is going to hand over a captured IAF pilot over to authorities of the neighbouring country.

A senior official of India's Border Security Force said the martial ceremony has been called off due to administrative requirements in the wake of IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman's release post noon at this frontier.
