Islamabad, November 26: The Pakistan authorities have “halted” the import of cotton and other agricultural commodities, including vegetables, from India via the Wagah border, a Pakistan newspaper report has said.

An official from the Department of Plant Protection has said the move comes following escalating tensions between the two countries after Indian troops allegedly targeted a passenger bus and an ambulance near the LoC, killing “three Pakistan soldiers and 10 civilians” on Wednesday, Dawn reported.

Cotton importers and customs clearing agents claimed the department had stopped the import of commodities from India without warning, citing increase in tensions across the LoC. — IANS
