Braveheart's son refuses to perform last rites until UP CM arrives

Deoria (Uttar Pradesh) [India], May 3 (ANI): The son of Border Security Force (BSF) head constable Prem Sagar, who lost his life in the ceasefire violation by Pakistan on Monday, has said that the last rites of his father would not be performed until Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath arrives at their hometown.

Earlier today, the mortal remains of the braveheart were brought to his village here amid slogans in his praise by hundreds of villagers, who had gathered to pay their respect to the departed soul.

The Pakistan Army on Monday had mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers, identified as Prem Sagar and Naib subedar Paramjit Singh, who were killed earlier in a ceasefire violation at Jammu and Kashmir's Krishna Ghati sector in Poonch district.

The Indian Army confirmed the news, releasing a statement on Twitter.

"Pak Army carried out unprovoked Rocket and Mortar firing on two forward posts on the line of control in Krishna Ghati Sector.

Simultaneously a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts. In a unsoldierly act by the Pak Army the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated. Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded," read the Indian Army's statement. (ANI)
