Jamia Nagar residents pay tribute to Uri martyrs

Jamia Nagar residents organised a candle march in Batla House to pay homage to the martyrs who had sacrificed their lives in the terrorist attack on Uri Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir.

The tribute was paid on the day when India gave Pakistan evidence of involvement of Pak-based terrorists in the Uri attack and demanded that it refrain from supporting and sponsoring terrorism directed against this country.

Also, Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit.

 “If the Government of Pakistan wishes to investigate these cross-border attacks, India is ready to provide fingerprints and DNA samples of terrorists killed in the Uri and Poonch incidents,” he told the Pakistan envoy as reported by PTI.

Eighteen 18 jawans were martyred in the Uri attack.
