A day after a mysterious video, purportedly showing a person carrying the severed head of Indian soldier Hemraj, who was beheaded by Pakistan Army regulars last year, surfaced, Bharatiya Janata Party workers and students on Friday took out protest march here.


Scores of BJP activists held a demonstration in the Talab Tilloo area of the city and demanded action against Pakistan. Joining the protest, hundreds of college students demanded a "befitting reply" to Pakistan.

"We demand action against Pakistan, not talks," a student leader said.

After the first anniversary of the beheading of two Army jawans on the Poonch Line of Control on January 8, a video emerged on social media and TV channels on Thursday, purportedly showing a person carrying a head, with suggestions that it was that of lance naik Hemraj, who was beheaded by Pakistan Army regulars.

In the video, a person, who, according to media reports, is a terrorist, is allegedly parading the head of lance naik Hemraj on Pakistani soil, with his other belongings, including torch batteries and low denomination Indian currency.

Over 100 activists of Shiv Sena and Dogra Front also held protest demonstrations over the issue.
