As Pakistan celebrates its independence day, government forces in Jammu and Kashmir were dumbfounded when two girls tied Pakistan flags to the fence of a park in the summer capital Srinagar’s city centre.
Witnesses and police sources said, despite a huge security cover that is thrown around the area in the run up to the independence day celebrations of both India and Pakistan, at least two Pakistan flags were tied to iron fence of the Pratap Park.
A top police officer from the Kothibagh Police Station told Kashmir Dispatch that in the noon today two girls came in an auto and tied two flags to the Pratap Park fence.
He said we removed the flags but the girls after hoisting the flags left the place.
The officer, however, didn’t say that the girls hoisted Pakistan flags. “The tied two green flags to the fence of the Pratap Park,” he said. But, onlookers, confirmed that the girls ties Pakistan flags.
Pertinently, Pakistan flags were earlier hoisted on the fort in the Old City.
