Mehbooba, Omar denounce civilian’s killing


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, PDP chief, Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference Vice President, Omar Abdullah and have called for “sanity to prevail” after killing of civilian by Indian troops in Islamabad district of south Kashmir.

Mehbooba Mufti in her tweet called it a “knee-jerk” reaction and asked if “any action will be taken against the trigger-happy personnel.”

“Killed by forces at a check point in South Kashmir last night. A heightened state of alert cannot be a reason to open fire like this.

Senior officers of the forces need to ensure calmer heads prevail & nothing happens to worsen the situation,” Omar Abdullah said in a tweet.

Meanwhile “BJP government and its wrong policies adopted since August 5, 2019 and before that as well, are directly responsible for the fast worsening situation in Kashmir,” Mehbooba told reporters outside slain school principal, Supinder Kour’s Aloochibagh residence in Srinagar.

The PDP chief condemned the killing of Kour and a civilian in South Kashmir’s Islamabad district by Indian troops stating that it’s an irony that it was stated by the authorities that the slain youth was trying to attack forces’ personnel.—KMS
