Plus Minus icon with bootstrap accordion

I am sharing the HTML. Which will help you to understand how does it work?

<div class="panel-group has-plus-minus" id="accordian">
   <div class="panel panel-default">
      <div class="panel-heading" data-toggle="collapse" data-parent="#accordian" href="#collapse1">
         <h4 class="panel-title">Collapse 1</h4>
      <div id="collapse1" class="collapse in">
         <div class="panel-body">Hello World !</div>
   <div class="panel panel-default">
      <div class="panel-heading collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-parent="#accordian" href="#collapse2">
         <h4 class="panel-title">Collapse 2</h4>
      <div id="collapse2" class="collapse">
         <div class="panel-body">Hello Test !</div>

So here is the CSS which will do the task perfectly.


.panel-group.has-plus-minus .panel-title:after {
   content: '\2212';
   position: relative;
   top: -1px;
   display: inline-block;
   font-family: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
   float: right;
.panel-group.has-plus-minus .panel-heading.collapsed .panel-title:after {
