JAMMU: Condemning the terror attack in Udhampur in which two BSF jawans were killed and 11 others injured, NC President Farooq Abdullah today said India should make clear to Pakistan that it will not tolerate such attacks and that the country should mend its ways.

"We should clearly tell Pakistan that we want to live in peace but we will not tolerate this (such terror attacks)," Farooq told reporters today.

"We should tell Pakistan to mend its ways or whatever will happen later, you (Pak) solely would be responsible," he said.

"Poor people are dying (in terror attacks). Jawans who are for our security, are losing their lives in such attacks and they are not planning to invade Pakistan. He (Jawans) is here to defend and provide security to people of Jammu and Kashmir. Why should he be killed or a civilian be killed or hostage-taking take place," he further said.

Taking a dig at peace talks, he said, "What will we be getting from Track-2, Track-3 and security meetings of National Security Adviser?"

He also referred to the talks between the Indian Prime Minister and Pakistani counterpart and asked what impact it had on better relations.

Taking a potshot at security forces, he said " Who is allowing militants to cross over to this side, when Pak and India armies guard the borderline on two sides. Who is allowing them to cross. How they are crossing?"
