Meanwhile, on the sidelines of the event, soldiers of both India and Pakistan faced each other in five-a-side Volleyball match, which the Indian team that comprised of five Rajput Regiment eventually won 3-0, said a tweet from news agency ANI.


The match was held on August 26 and not just volleyball but other sports such as Futsal, Swimming, Kettlebell Lifting, Arm Wrestling & Tug of War were also played.


During the event both the teams received enormous support from the other participating nations, but it appeared that while Russia vouched for India, China shouted for Pakistan.
