    Looks like you are enjoying it, . Don't try to misguide Indians. This just proves correct what the defence minister has said along, that fake currency was used to fund terror. Now, with that stopped, such desperate measures are being resorted to.

    No money to und terrorism and spoiled brats are not ready to pelt stones at the security forces without money and so no money coming from stani intelligence and so they are left with no choice but to loot indian banks to fund terrorism. Since demoniterisation there has been no stone pelting as stan government lost lot of money in already printed old notes.

    They were there for new notes, stan needs new copy of notes to counterfeit.lt;br/gt;I can bet anything that's the cause for this. Increase security and shoot at sight.
