People’s Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday condemned the killing of a civilian youth by Indian forces at Haal in Pulwama district in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The youth identified as Aasif Ahmad Padroo was martyred when an Indian policeman opened fire on him in the district.

The killing of youth comes on a day when Indian Home Minister Amit Shah was in Kashmir. Mehbooba Mufti while condemning the killing in a tweet said, “As if the harsh measures put in place causing grave inconvenience to the people in Kashmir weren’t enough, Asif from Pulwama paid with his life in the name of ensuring security for Amit Shah’s visit. My heart goes out to his family”.

National Conference Vice-President Omar Abdullah while condemning the killing said, “The killing of an unarmed civilian is highly condemnable. There must be a swift, credible and transparent probe into the death. Those responsible must be punished to the fullest extent possible”.—KMS
