The mother of a soldier killed in the attack at the army camp in Uri today demanded justice and strict punishment for the perpetrators as a pall of gloom descended on his village in West Bengal’s Howrah district.
“I demand justice and strict punishment for those who killed my son,” mother of Gangadhar Dolui said.
“My son rang me up a few days ago. He said he is alright. I don’t belive that he is no more,” the grieving mother said.
Another soldier Biswajit Garai, who hailed from South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, was also killed in the terror attack in Uri.
In one of the deadliest attacks on the army in recent years, 18 jawans were killed and as many others injured as heavily armed militants, suspected to be from Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, stormed a battalion headquarters of the force in North Kashmir’s Uri town in the wee hours yesterday.
