Sikh body anguished over Kashmir killings

Srinagar: All Party Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) members have expressed anguish over the day to day killing of innocent people in Kashmir valley.
“The situation has taken a very serious turn by keeping the common man hostage since last 25 days of curfew,” an APSCC statement said. APSCC also held a condolence meeting to mourn the innocent killings.
APSCC Chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina said that its shocking that the government is not able to ban or prevent use of Pellet gun which has taken toll of injuries to 200.
“Many have lost their eyesight while the number of injured has crossed 3000, which is outrageous. There is no hope from central government to bring all Kashmiri leaders on table to resolve the ongoing turmoil,” Raina said.
He further said that “during our camp at SHMS hospital Srinagar and discussion with senior doctors we recommended Diljeet Eye hospital Amritsar, for treatment of eye injuries.  The Hospital has assured their help and cooperation to the needy and poor people.” Raina said in the coming days APSCC will organize more medical camps.
On this occasion, Dr Joginder Singh Shaan said that innocent killings will not help to restore peace in Kashmir valley, and urged the central government to bring all Kashmir leaders including separatists on table for resolving the ongoing turmoil.
APSCC member Pardeep Singh said that Home Minister Rajnath Singh came to Kashmir without any agenda and solution. His visit to Kashmir was more of an eye wash rather than resolving the Kashmir turmoil, due to which all civil society bodies boycotted his offer for meeting.
APSCC demanded immediate visit of senior leaders from national parties to know ground zero situation prevailing since last 25 days in valley, and take this issue to current Parliament session without fail. APSCC has shown keen concern regarding minorities of Kashmir.
