Virat Kohli pays his respects to Uri Martyrs after Historic Test Win


New Delhi: India Test skipper on Monday said he was disturbed by the recent terror attack in Uri and expressed sympathies with the families of the martyred jawans.

India registered a thumping win against New Zealand on Monday in what was their 500th Test match. While skipper Virat Kohli was all smiles after the 197-run triumph, he took a moment to express his sorrow at the recent terror attack on an army camp in Uri. He conveyed his condolences to the families of the 18 martyred soldiers.

During a press conference on India’s win against New Zealand in Kanpur, Kohli was asked a question on the terror attacks in the violence-hit state of Jammu and Kashmir.

“As an Indian it hurts. What is going on is disturbing.. and I can imagine what is going through the minds of the families whose sons have died,” Kohli said.

This is not for the first time the skipper has expressed his views on the gruesome attack by Pakistan. He tweeted a picture last Monday condemning the attack.

The four terrorists, were gunned down by Army personnel after a three-hour gunbattle. The Army said its initial findings suggested that the terrorists belonged to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad and had come from across the LoC.
