Activists of the Bajrang Dal and Vishva Hindu Parishad on Wednesday took to the streets of Agra to protest against the July 10 attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims. The right-wing activists brandished weapons, including swords and pistols, and promised to take the law into their own hands if the Centre did not avenge the killing of seven pilgrims in the next 15 days, ANI reported.
“We would like to tell the government of India that if the Amarnath victims do not get avenged within 15 days, we will have to take law into our own hands to protect pilgrims,” Bajrang Dal leader Govind Prashar was quoted as saying by ANI.
Seven Amarnath Yatra pilgrims were killed and 18 others were injured after militants had attacked their bus in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Monday evening. The militants had fired at their bus, which had been on the journey from Gujarat.
