Srinagar, Dec 22 : Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Wednesday condemned the twin attacks where a civilian was killed at Mirjanpora, Nawa Kadal and an Assistant Sub Inspector of police who was attacked by unknown gunmen at Bijbehara.
In a statement issued to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Bukhari termed such attacks as highly reprehensible while saying that radical forces have only added to the woes of the people in J&K.
“Violence in any of its manifestations is always unacceptable and will yield nothing except for further death and destruction. The vicious cycle of death has caused much loss to human lives in J&K while devastating the socio-economic conditions of the people during the last over three decades. It is high time for such incidents to be stopped now,” he said.
Bukhari extended his profound condolences to the bereaved families in this time of despair and prayed for eternal peace to the departed souls. He also demanded that the government should disburse adequate ex-gratia relief to the families of the slain besides nabbing the perpetrators of this heinous crime and bringing them to justice—(KNO)
