A day after BSF ASI Brij Kishore Yadav was killed in a militant attack in Srinagar, his daughter Sushma Kumari on Wednesday said 100 Pakistani terrorists should be killed to compensate for her father’s supreme sacrifice for the country.

“We want 100 Pakistani terrorists’ heads for my father’s sacrifice,” Sushma said.

She said until the Indian government avenged her father’s killing while repulsing an attack on the 182 Battalion camp of the Border Security Force near Srinagar Airport in Jammu and Kashmir earlier Tuesday morning, any talks were useless for her.

“We want strong action against Pakistani terrorists,” she said.

She said her family as well as residents of the family’s native village Kamalchak in Bhagalpur district of Bihar were proud of her father’s sacrifice.

The 50-year-old assistant sub inspector, who owned a house in Sahebganj in Jharkhand, was to be cremated at Kamalchak village on Wednesday evening.

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has announced a compensation of Rs 11 lakh to Yadav’s family and his cremation with full state honours.

Suicide attackers of the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group stormed the BSF camp with guns and explosives on Tuesday, triggering a gunfight that left all three attackers and the trooper dead.

Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad expressed his condolences to the bereaved family.
