Grateful nation gives teary farewell to Uri bravehearts, wants action against Pakistan

4New Delhi: The mortal remains of brave 18 soldiers who died in Sunday’s dastardly militant attack in Uri are being taken to their ancestral places for their last rites on Tuesday. They were earlier given an emotional farewell at the army headquarters in Badamibagh by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, senior Army and police officials on Monday.
Post the wreath laying ceremony, Mehbooba visited the injured soldiers at the 92 Base Hospital of the Army in Srinagar. Several jawans continue to battle serious injuries.
The mortal remains of the martyrs were then transported to their respective hometowns.
While two of the soldiers hail from Jammu and Kashmir, rest of them belong to Uttar Pradesh (four), Bihar (three), Maharashtra (three), West Bengal (two), Jharkhand (two) and Rajasthan (one).
Four heavily armed militants had stormed a battalion headquarters of the Army in North Kashmir’s Uri town in the wee hours Sunday, killing 17 jawans and injuring 19 other personnel. In an encounter, the security forces had neutralised all the four militants within hours.
Hailing the martyrs, Prime Minster Modi had strongly taken on the perpetrators of the attack, vowing that those behind the “despicable and cowardly” act will not go unpunished.
In a statement issued on Sunday, President Pranab Mukherjee said that India will not be cowed down by such “outrageous” attacks and that it will thwart the evil designs of terrorists and their backers. While New Delhi has blamed Islamabad for the terror attack in Uri, Indians from across the world have demanded strong action against Pakistan. The attack – deadliest in the history of the Indian Army – has also triggered a massive political outrage with several politicians joining the ranks in their criticism of Pak-sponsored terrorist outfits.
