Martyred rifleman Aurangzeb's father Mohammad Hanif has said on Tuesday that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi should meet Pakistan's newly-appointed PM Imran Khan.
According to news agency ANI, Hanif said that there should be a mutual understanding between the two countries and that no person should be killed in a conflict between India and Pakistan.
Speaking on Navjot Singh Sidhu's meeting with the Pakistan Army chief, Hanif said that Pakistan Army chief should meet with other representatives from India as well. He added that he would like to tell Imran Khan that if Pakistan takes a step towards India, India will take a hundred steps towards them.
Aurangzeb, a rifleman of 4 Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry, was abducted and killed by terrorists on June 14 while he was on his way home to celebrate Eid.
According to police, he was shot in his head and neck after being abducted from Kashmir's Pulwama district. His body was recovered by a team of police and army personnel at Gussu village in Pulwama district. Aurangzeb was posted at the 44 Rashtriya Rifles camp at Shopian's Shadimarg.
Following his death, his family made an emotional appeal to the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir government to eliminate militancy from the state. Aurangzeb was also awarded Shaurya Chakra -- third highest gallantry award -- by the Indian government on Independence Day.
