Jammu: Lawyers on Monday observed a strike at the High Court and other courts here and held protest demonstration against the killing of 18 army soldiers by militants at Uri.
Raising anti-Pakistan slogans, they took out a protest rally in the high court complex and blamed Pakistan for militancy in Kashmir.
“We condemn the Uri militant attack. Pakistan should be taken to task. It has been aiding and abetting militancy ism in Jammu and Kashmir,” Jammu Bar Association president Abhinav Sharma said.
Heavily armed militants alleged to be from Pakistan- based JeM had on Sunday stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir, killing 18 soldiers.
