Gurdaspur terror attack: Shiv Sena burns Pak flag
Phagwara (Pb): Several activists of the Shiv Sena today burnt the Pakistani flag here to protest “Pak-sponsored” terror attack at Dina Nagar area of Gurdaspur district.
The protest, led by the party’s state Vice President Inderjit Karwal, prompted authorities to divert the route of one of the buses plying between India and Pakistan under the banner of “Sada-e-Sarhad”.
According to police, while the Lahore-bound Indian bus from New Delhi passed normally from NH1 here much before the protest, the other bus, bound for New Delhi from Lahore, wasdiverted from Kartarpur via Nakodar, Noormahal, Phillaur on to NH1 near Phillaur, skipping the Phagwara area.
Meanwhile, the protesters, who first assembled atHanumangarhi temple, marched towards NH1, finally converging at the Sugar mill crossing.
Raising slogans against Pakistan and terrorists, they set ablaze the Pakistani flag there and staged demonstrations, leading to a slight disruption in traffic.
While addressing the protesters, Karwal demanded “snapping of all ties” with Pakistan and “discontinuation of international buses and trains” plying between the two nations to protest that country’s “continued sinister attempts to destabilise India through cross-border terrorism.”
