Mehbooba condemns killing of policemen in Srinagar

SRINAGAR: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, has expressed deep shock over the killing of three policemen in two separate militant attacks in Srinagar on Monday.

The Chief Minister visited the Police Control Room (PCR) in Srinagar where she laid floral wreath on the mortal remains of the slain police personnel.

She expressed solidarity with the bereaved families of the deceased and prayed for peace to the departed souls.
Recalling the sacrifices of police personnel in combating militancy in the state, Ms Mufti said such dastardly acts are against the basic tenets of humanity and they should be condemned by one and all.

“My heart goes out to the families of the slain police personnel and I hope that the perpetrators will be taken to task soon,” she said.

Mufti said such attacks are attempts by vested interests to derail the peace and reconciliation process started by the state government in Jammu and Kashmir which will also impact the economy at a time when the tourism activity had started picking up in the state.
