New Delhi: A video today emerged mysteriously on social media and TV channels purportedly showing a person carrying a head with suggestions that it was that of Lance Naik Hemraj, who was beheaded by Pakistan Army regulars on the LoC a year ago.

The Army Headquarters refused to comment on the issue saying they were not in a position to say anything on the contents of the video.

However, Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari condemned the incident saying, "If there is such a video on social media, it is sad and condemnable. I am sure that the Defence Ministry would take some action in this regard after ascertaining its veracity."

In the video, a person, who according to media reports is a terrorist, is allegedly parading the head of Lance Naik Hemraj on Pakistani soil along with his other belongings including torch batteries and low denomination Indian currency.

Commenting on the incident, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said using the head of the beheaded Indian soldier as a trophy as shown in the video clip is absolutely shocking.

"This is against the very spirit of humanity. Indian government must immediately tell whether this is the head of Hemraj and what action it is taking on the issue. We will wait for 24 hours on what the government has done. This is a crime against humanity and cannot be forgiven," he said.
