Kashmiri activist Sushil Pandit has urged that India must not observe restraint and seek retribution against Pakistan for Sunday's terror strike in Uri.

Pandit said, "This attack merits a very serious retaliation from the government. India must no longer observe the restraint that it has shown over the past so many decades. Pakistan does not merit Indian restraint anymore. This toll is likely to go higher because there are several injured soldiers in critical condition. The coffins have begun to reach their families. This nation wants retribution."

India is to present all actionable evidence against Pakistan if required at international bodies.

Sources state that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will strongly emphasise on Pakistan's involvement in the attack in her UNGA speech on September 26.

Pakistan has, however, flatly refused New Delhi's claims of Islamabad's involvement in the Uri terror attack, stating that it has become India's traditional tendency to point fingers on them after each terrorist attack.
