This was followed by a threat in Urdu language that ‘All Hindus and Sardar (Sikhs) community are warned to leave this area as soon as possible, otherwise you will have to pay a heavy price’. On getting information about the incident, Poonch Police Station Officer Deepak Pathania along with a security team reached the spot. They confiscated the posters in the presence of the Sarpanch. At the main entrance of ‘Gita Bhawan’ which is the residence of Advocate Mahinder Piyasa, two other posters were seized from outside the house of Sujan Singh. In this regard, Hindus have demanded an action from the Police and the Indian Army against the culprits.
