New Delhi: The Indian state witnessed one of the most deadliest terror attacks on its soil in the wee hours of Sunday.
18 soldiers were martyred after militants stormed a battalion headquarters.
The attack comes two years after militants had carried out a similar type of attack at Mohra in the same area.
The nature of the attack and the subsequent damage left citizens of India in complete shock and disbelief.
Amidst a clamor for military action against Pakistan, the entire nation came together to pay tributes to the martyrs.
Not just the general public, but celebrities too shared their sentiments post the incident.
The most unique among them was that of India's Test skipper Virat Kohli.
Shattered by the episode, the Delhi batsman could find no words to even state what he felt.
