Prime Minister also prayed for high ranks of the departed souls and grant of courage to the loved ones of martyred people to bear this huge loss. He also said that the martyred soldiers of Pakistan Army are held in highest esteem and will always be remembered.

A couple of days ago, Pakistani Troops killed 6 Indian soldiers in retaliation to their unprovoked firing along LoC. The tensions at LoC have been escalating for about two months due to constant ceasefire violations by Indian Armed Forces.
Pakistan has told India many times to refrains from creating tensions and spreading terror at LoC but yet Narendra Modi’s establishment does not look in mood to prevail and promote peace in the region.
