The devastating terror attack on CRPF personnel that took place last week in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district has left a deep sense of anger and grief among the people of India.

In one of the most gruesome terror attacks in recent times, 40 CRPF men were killed and many injured when a suicide bomber, belonging to Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed, rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into the bus on which the personnel were travelling.

The attack has been denounced by communities across the world with people from all walks of life coming forward to help the families of the martyrs. Meanwhile, there is also a growing clamour in the country for a millitary strike against Pakistan.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir too suggested that this time "talks with Pakistan should not be on the table but on the battle ground".

"Yes, let's talk with the separatists. Yes, let’s talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can’t be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough. 18 CRPF personnel killed in IED blast on Srinagar-Jammu highway," Gambhir tweeted.

A video has now surfaced online where former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi can be seen reacting to Gambhir's tweet.

As Afridi was heading to board his bus after a PSL match, a reported asked him about his take on Gambhir's tweet. To which, Afridi reacted by saying, "Kya ho gaya usko? (What happened to him)".

Without reacting further, Afridi proceeded to board the bus.

Gambhir and Afridi have had a history of on-field confrontations during high-tension India-Pakistan matches.
