Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has condemned the lynching of the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) Mohammad Ayub Pandit, who was lynched by mob outside Jamia Masjid in Srinagar’s old city last night.
In a statement issued here, the BJP spokesman, Khalid Jehangir, said, “The lynching of the Jammu and Kashmir Police DySP is heart rendering. He was killed by the same people whom he protected.”
The BJP spokesman said, “Henchmen of a few people derive sadistic pleasure by lynching and killing people just to appease their bosses sitting across the Line of Control (LoC).”
Jehangir said, “The government should reconsider the decision of providing Z- security to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, whom the slain DySP was guarding.”
Jehangir expressed solidarity with the DySP’s family and prayed for peace to the departed soul.
