Jammu: The coalition partner of the state government, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanded the withdrawal of an FIR lodged against the army men in the killing of two civilians in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.

BJP’s RS Pathania said while speaking in the Assembly said that the government should withdraw the FIR against the Army personnel and lodge a fresh FIR without naming anybody.
