LAHORE (Web Desk) – For the first time ever, the intensity of patriotism brimmed over at the Ganda Singh Wala border crossing when border guards from the Indian and Pakistani sides traded blows during the retreat ceremony.

Yesterday’s graceful flag-lowering ceremony turned ugly when two border guards broke out into a scuffle while collecting the flag for the day. Traditional ceremonies are held every day at various border crossing between Pakistan and India to mark the raising and lowering of the national flags on both sides.

Once the fight broke out, both sets of troops could not resist trading blows and abuse.

So far, no official explanation for the incident has been provided by military high-ups from either country.

A visitor, who recorded the whole episode on his mobile phone, shared video of the incident online to a tremendous response.
