“In Kashmir, the death of any soldier or youth only makes the country’s enemies happy. A large group of them (country’s enemies) is whom I called white-collared terrorists. They identify and instigate youth around them into becoming terrorists, they are the most dangerous,” said Lieutenant General DP Pandey, General Officer Commanding, Chinar Corps while addressing a gathering at the “Chillai Kalan Festival” in Shopian on Wednesday.
“When such terrorist kills a common man or when a terrorist gets killed, the white-collar terrorists are the happiest,” he added.
Requesting people not to get influenced by such people, GOC, Chinar Corps added, “It is the mother who suffers most on the death of her son, whether that son is a civilian, a security personnel, a gangster, a criminal or a terrorist.”
