Another local official however confirmed that the Afghan forces prevented the Pakistani border guards to install a gate in Torkham which resulted into the clash.

A commander of the Afghan Border Police in east Gen. Ayub Hussain Khel confirmed that the clashes erupted over the installation of a door by the Pakistani border guards.

He said an Afghan police lost his life and five others were wounded during the clash which lasted for several hours.

There are no reports regarding the exact number of Pakistani forces casualties as the officials have said two soldiers have sustained injuries.

This comes as tensions intensified among the Afghan and Pakistani border guards along Torkham in mid-May but the issue was resolved due to diplomatic intervention by the officials of the two countries.

Both the Afghan and Pakistani forces deployed additional troops and heavy military equipment including tanks due to the growing tensions.

The Torkham gate remained close for at least four days before the officials of the two countries agreed to end the deadlock.
