The cowardice of these #ISI bred terrorist scum is evident from the fact that he chose to attack the @JmuKmrPolice cops from behind.— Danish Manzoor | Physical Distancing (@TellDM) February 19, 2021
These vermin of #TRF know they can never take our forces on in a fair gunfight. Never.
Swift justice is what this coward deserves. Swift.
