Bollywood celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Shekhar Kapur, Riteish Deshmukh and Adnan Sami have offered condolences to the families of the Uri attack martyrs and demanded a strong action against the attackers.
Terrorists sneaked into an army camp here in Jammu and Kashmir early on Sunday and slaughtered 17 soldiers in the worst attack in a decade on a military centre in the state.
According to military officials, over two dozen soldiers were also injured in the audacious attack that left all four heavily-armed militants who barged into the camp near Uri town at 5.30 a.m. dead after two-and-half hours gun battle.
Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other political leaders, various Bollywood celebrities have also condemned the attack on Twitter.
