"The government should harden its stand on the hostility shown by Pakistani forces which claimed lives of two jawans.
The killing was against humanity and indeed a violation of our Geneva convention (which lays down how captured soldiers should be treated)," Gen Singh who arrived

The public anger and protests all over the country against the killing of our jawans is justified, he said.
