Srinagar: In the backdrop of barbaric beheading of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistani forces, the mother of Lance Naik Hemraj, who was also beheaded by the Pakistan's Border Action Team (BAT) along the Line of Control (LoC) in 2013, has called on the Centre to step up and retaliate.
The appeal from the old lady comes after Pakistan's notorious Border Action Team (BAT) again mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Krishna Ghati sector along the Line of Control.
The BAT, it is believed, had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj in 2013.
"They beheaded my son and now we are witnessing numerous incidences every day. The government had promised that they will behead ten people if they beheaded one of ours, till now nothing has been done. The government should take stern action against Pakistan now," Hemraj's mother said.
She further urged the Government to understand how painful it is for a mother to lose her child and pressed for retaliation.
"The government must take stern action against Pakistan. They have not fulfilled any of the promises made to the martyr's family till now," she added.
Resonating similar sentiments, the brother of Hemraj asserted that the situation is very upsetting and India must resonate to Islamabad's atrocities.
"It is a very sad situation, the way our soldiers are losing their lives and the government is not taking any action in this regard. The centre should take stern action against Pakistan so that such incidents are not repeated in future," said the brother of Hemraj.
Earlier on Monday, the Indian Army confirmed the involvement of the BAT in the gruesome act beheading Indian soldier.
In a cowardly act by the Pakistani Army, the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated. Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded," read the Indian Army's statement.
