Srinagar: Distributing relief in Shaheed Gunj area chairman JKLF Mohammad Yasin Malik Friday expressed shock at the devastation caused in the area.

He said, “The scale of destruction and mayhem caused by recent floods is of such a scale that we need international support and aid to get out of this situation.”

Malik also thanked Indian people for their support, “We are thankful to our Sikh brethren, and people of India and their voluntary organizations for providing relief material. I thank SSN Logistic Pvt. Ltd for sending relief for the flood-affected people of Kashmir. I also thank CEO of the company Sahil Barua and others for their generosity.”
