Mehbooba Mufti condemns custodial killing of youth in Shopian


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti has condemned the ‘custodial’ killing of a youth in Shopian district and demanded an impartial probe into the incident.

The youth Imran Bashir Ganai was arrested by Indian police and troops during a cordon and search operation on Tuesday after a grenade blast in which two Indian laborers were killed in Hermain area of the district. The troops then took him to Nowgam area of the district and killed him in a fake encounter.

Mehbooba Mufti in a tweet today said, “Using dubious nomenclature – hybrid militant & chance encounters to justify civilian killings has become the norm in Kashmir. Imran Ganai arrested by the police & then killed in their custody allegedly by another militant defies logic & deserves a thorough investigation.”—KMS
