Srinagar: Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) on Wednesday paid tributes to the slain militant and the three civilians killed in encounter and clashes in Chadoora area of Budgam district. In an e-mailed statement, LeT spokesman Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi quoted the outfit chief Mehmood Shah as saying that targeting civilians and use of huge forces against a single militant is shameful and inhuman act.
He said, “We know that the Indian forces are usually committing such atrocities and the increasing terrorism by India is tantamount to acceptance of defeat.”
Mehmood Shah said, “India should keep it in mind that the situation would soon get out of their control as the people of Kashmir and militants are fighting together.”
He said, “The India strengthened their occupation in Kashmir by giving a lollipop of dialogue process and to wait for such process is tantamount to giving them a space to further strengthen their occupation.”
