Pampore terror attack: BJP MLAs raise anti-Pakistan slogans in Jammu and Kashmir assembly

Srinagar, June 27: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs staged a protest in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly on Monday in the wake of the killing of eight CRPF troopers in an ambush in Pampore on Saturday.

The BJP MLAs raised anti-Pakistan slogans like ‘Pakistan Murdabad’ while demanding strict action against the neighbouring country.

BJP leader, Ravinder Raina said for the first time anti-Pakistan slogans have been raised in J-K Assembly.

“This is very unfortunate. Pakistani militants are continuously attacking our Jawans. Our jawans are getting sacrificed. Air strikes in terrorists camps in PoK should be made so that this does not happen again. The nation will not accept further sacrifices. The assembly has condemned the attacks on jawans,” he said

He also added that Indian military and Air force should be allowed to enter the areas where militants are hiding.

Eight CRPF personnel were martyred and 24 injured in the major ambush by two terrorists on Saturday, who were neutralised in the encounter in Pampore.

Security personnel recovered arms and ammunition, including two AK 47 Rifles, 11 hand grenades from the killed terrorists.

Saturday’s attack was the fourth one on the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir this month. At least 17 security personnel were killed and several others injured in the last three major strikes along the Jammu-Srinagar Highway during the period.

Officials say infiltration has dramatically gone up compared to the previous year with more than 50 terrorists crossing the border in the last five months. Last year, there was zero infiltration in the first four months.
