Pakistan and its northwest neighbour Afghanistan have decided to form a committee to investigate the attack on Pakistani Security forces at Boldak Chaman.

On Sunday, an armed afghan reportedly crossed the Chaman border and opened fire at Pakistani security troops killing one and leaving two wounded.

Taliban administration condemned the attack and assigned a high-level delegation to probe the event.

The Pakistan-Afghanistan border ceased operations on Monday for the second day in a row as tensions between the two nations are high following unjustified gunfire from the Afghan side.

The attack by afghan led to hours-long firing between the borders of two states affecting the trade between states.

Deputy Commissioner Chaman, Abdul Hameed Zehri stated that security has been tightened after firing at the border.

Officials from Pakistan and Afghanistan met under the flag to talk about border-related concerns.

But there was no development towards the reactivation of the border.

However, after the shooting incident, Pakistan increased security measures as the border remained closed and all pedestrian movement and commercial activity were halted.
