The two Indian bravehearts who laid down their lives for the nation were honoured in Rajouri. And, while the martyr's families are shaken, they are proud of their sons. They want the Indian government to take a tough stand to expose Pakistan's brutality.
In a "provocative" attack on January 8, Pakistani regular soldiers had crossed into Indian territory in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir and ambushed an Indian patrol killing two soldiers, one of whom was decapitated. The attack took place along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district when Pakistanis came about 100 metres into Indian territory and assaulted the patrol party. Besides killing two, they also injured two other soldiers and took away their weapons and other belongings.
