Congratulations to J&K police for ‘unbeaten’ double century, Sehwag reacts to killing of 200 militants


Twitter celebrity and former Indian cricketer, Virender Sehwag on Friday congratulated the Jammu and Kashmir police for an “unbeaten double century”.

However, Sehwag was not referring to a cricket match but the killings of militants in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Congratulations to @adgpi and J&K Police for the unbeaten double century this year, eliminating 200 terrorists in 2017 alone. Jai Hind ! May there be peace (SIC),” Sehwag tweeted.

Pertinently, for the first time in seven years, the number of militants killed in Kashmir has crossed 200.

“Today by the collective effort of @JmuKmrPolice, Indian Army, @crpfindia, CAPF and people of Kashmir have led to neutralization of more than 200 terrorists in the year of 2017 alone,” Director General of Police (DGP) Shesh Paul Vaid tweeted on Thursday.

The DGP’s tweet came on a day five militants were killed in two separate encounters by the forces in Kashmir’s Budgam and Baramulla districts, officials said. “This marks a huge landmark for establishing peace and stability in the state of J&K and our country,” the DGP added in another tweet.
