New Delhi:

"Give total freedom to Indian Army soldiers to tackle dangerous situations faced in the line of duty," Punjab Chief mInister Amarinder Singh advocated on Monday.

Amid concern over the increasing vulnerability of Indian soldiers on the border, the chief minister issued a statement to express solidarity with Indian soldiers stating they were being “exposed to all kinds of risks and atrocities not only at the hands of enemy forces from across the border but sometimes also at the hands of civilians, like it happened in Kashmir recently.”

Two bodies of two Indian soldiers were mutilated by Pakistani Army's BAT on Monday, creating an outrage across India.

The Congress leader urged the Centre to “send out a strong signal to such inimical forces against indulging in such atrocities and barbaric acts.” “Such unprovoked acts of excessive violence cannot be tolerated or allowed to go unpunished. Indian soldiers are not a dispensable commodity to be sacrificed at the altar of such uncivilised and savage assaults,” he said in the statement.
