Twenty-one people, including eight soldiers, were killed in a string of attacks across Kashmir on Friday.
Kashmir Valley was yesterday rocked by four attacks by militants from across the border, who stormed an army camp in Uri leaving 11 security personnel including Lt Colonel Sankalp Kumar dead and killed two civilians in Tral. Among them was a top commander of Pakistan-based terror outfit LeT and seven militants.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday the terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir was a “shameful act on the democratic process” in the state which is in the midst of assembly polls.

Youth wing of PML-N:
PML-N stands for Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, the party to which Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif belongs.
Violent people will remain violent people. What about those who appear to have lost their sanity?
About a comment made by Sitaram Yechury and another made by Mehbooba Mufti:
Sitaram Yechury now hints that the attacks in Kashmir could be because the Indian government wants to polarise Jammu. Wow! — Tavleen Singh (@tavleen_singh) December 5, 2014
After sitaram yechurys statement on today’s Uri attack. I can safely say that motherfker is a synonym for his name & ideology. — Major srikanth (@majorsrikanth) December 5, 2014
