Women lawyers in Lucknow demand soldier Hemraj’s severed head back

Lucknow, Jan. 13 (ANI): Members of the All India Muslim Women’s Personal Law Board took to the streets here on Sunday to protest against the ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops and the brutal killing of two Indian jawans.

Disapproving the untoward incident that took place along the Line of Control (Loc), the protesters raised slogans against the Pakistani Government.

President of All-India Muslim Women Law Board, Shaista Amber, demanded that Pakistan must respectfully return the head of the Indian soldier, who was beheaded.

Amber also demanded that India must break all relations with Pakistan.

“Pakistan must respectfully return the head of our Indian soldier, who was beheaded and his head was taken away. The Indian Government must break all relations with such a dreadful neighbour,” said Amber.

“We want that the Pakistani embassy in India should be shut. If they talk of peace between the two countries then why are they fighting and why are they behaving such brutally with our soldiers,” she added.

Two Indian jawans Lance Naik Hemraj and Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh were killed by infiltrating Pakistani soldiers in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on January 8.

Hemraj’s body was found mutilated, sparking a diplomatic face-off between India and Pakistan and tension along the LoC that separates the two countries.

Pakistan has denied India’s claim that its troops crossed the LoC to ambush a patrol party in the Mendhar sector in Poonch district. (ANI)
