The whole country is shell-shocked after terrorists committed one of the most deadliest attacks on Indian soldiers in recent years. The terrorists attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri on Sunday and killed 17 soldiers. Four militants have also been killed in the gunfight afterwards.

“A group of heavily armed terrorists targeted the rear administrative base of a unit at Uri, Kashmir. In the counter action, four terrorists were eliminated and combing operations are in progress. The administrative base had the large strength of troops of units turning over after their tour of duty who were stationed in tents/temporary shelters which caught fire, and resulted in heavy casualties. We salute the sacrifice of 17 soldiers who were martyred in the operation,” said a statement released by the Indian army.

Like the millions out there, the cricket fraternity also condemned the brutal attack and took to Twitter to express their grief. As expected the highly active Virender Sehwag led the proceedings.

Expressing his disappointment over the incident, he wrote: “Very very heartbroken to hear about. They are not Rebels,they are Terrorists. Terrorism must be answered appropriately.”

Other cricketers also expressed their grief and disappointment over the attack.
