Recently read that Pakistan returned one Indian solider because he accidentally 'swam' away into the country; and this is how they repay us?- by killing a civilian and injuring 2? Obviously all Indians on ET will be quite. Such lack of humanity -.-

This matter needs investigation and not just media reporting. I wonder why Pakistani government allow civilian settlement close to such a hot border. Troops on both sides of border are panicky about any movement along the border. Sadly there will be collateral damages. Civilian's safety is government's responsibility. And it's just rational in every level and sense that civilians are not allowed to wander close to such a hot border, unless you don't care for their lives.
