    It is understood from TV news , this is about top teririst replacing Burhanwani killed earlier & resident stone pelting the army.The home ministry need to send prompt specific instruction not to let this terrorist at any cost & send a message to stone pelter, terrorist & across the border. They will react with change in strategy. We do not believe it will stop the enemy, but will reduce local support
