A day after Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) commandos mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Krishna Ghati sector of Jammu and Kashmir, protests broke out at the Indo-Pak border in Jammu's RS Pura sector.
The protesters, most of them youngsters, condemned the barbarism of BAT and shouted anti-Pakistan slogans.
Most of the protesters demanded that a befitting retaliatory action be launched against Pakistan, while maintaining that ties between the two countries had always been tense.
"Pakistan is a habitual offender. We urge the Modi government to teach Pakistan a lesson by bringing ten heads to avenge the death of two. There has always been tension between the two countries. Avenging the killing of our soldiers is a must", said Sanket Sharma, an RS Pura resident.
COUNTER-ATTACK NEED OF THE HOUR
Another resident Rajesh Kumar said that a counter-attack was the need of the hour to make Pakistan feel the pain.
Ex-serviceman Bhura Singh said that Pakistan's unabated provocation needed to be avenged as that had crossed all limits.
This fresh provocation by Pakistan is likely to attract a befitting retaliation from the Indian forces, which may further escalate tensions along the border.
