Joining Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir and former opener Virender Sehwag in condemning the video featuring a security personnel being roughed up by a youth in Srinagar, Olympic wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt on Sunday said that anyone who goes against the country and misbehaves with our soldiers should be shot dead.
“What has happened is extremely wrong. Our CRPF jawan was insulted. He was brutally attacked and his helmet had also rolled down the road. It is extremely insulting for India to see a youth thrashing our jawan. This is very saddening. Anyone who goes against the country and misbehaves with our soldiers should be shot adead,” Yogeshwar told ANI in an exclusive conversation.
The Indian wrestler further insisted that the security forces should be given full power to deal directly with such elements.
Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt on Sunday came out in support of the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir, calling for them to be given a “free hand” to control the situation. “Security forces should be given free hand to deal with such elements, otherwise it won’t stop,” Dutt told news agency ANI.
