Small towns wake up early. In Dinanagar, Gurdaspur district, Punjab, terrorists woke up India at 5.30 am when they began shooting innocent people. A few minutes later, the news channels had found a juicy bone. They began to run breaking news about how terrorists had struck in Punjab, which had been free of violence for the last two decades. Shortly thereafter, the channels announced that the terrorists had occupied the police station of Dinanagar and were shooting from inside.
