After terror attacks in Punjab Army uniforms

Two back-to-back attacks in Punjab by terrorists wearing army fatigues prompted the Indian Army to issue an appeal Friday to civilians to avoid wearing "army-pattern" dresses and shopkeepers to refrain from selling combat clothes.
In the roadside markets of Old City in Chaura Bazaar of Ludhiana, however, there are multiple 'army and military stores' which sell army uniforms. They get their stock from retired soldiers or even those in service.
"Even discarded uniforms, brought in by ragpickers, land here," said a dealer who claims his wares come from the bazaars of even bigger cities like Delhi and Lucknow.
