A fresh anti-Pakistan protest broke out in Pathankot town on Sunday with the locals burning an effigy of the neighbouring nation following the terror attack on Air Force base.

A number of local residents raised anti-Pakistan slogans close to the air force station where the attack took place.

They set Pakistan’s effigy on fire, holding the country responsible for continued attacks in Punjab, even as they demanded that stern action be taken against it.

As the combing and search operation continue, residents continued to live in panic.

“We continue to live in fear as the situation is still not clear. The government or concerned authorities should throw light so that we can get on with our daily lives,” Jarnail Singh, a local resident, said.

Another local resident, Rani, claimed that her children were still panic-stricken.

“Normally, during winter vacations when their school remains closed, I do not see my two children, aged 11 and 7  for entire day as they are busy playing. But now they are scared to come out of the house after the terror attack,” she said.
