NC condemns Aqeel’s killing

Srinagar: National Conference on Thursday expressed profound grief and sorrow over the killing of Akeel Ahmad Bhat of Gabarpora Pulwama.
National Conference Chief Spokesperson and MLA Budgam, Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi said innocent killings of Kashmiris have become a norm.
In a statement issued from party headquarters he said, “It’s really unfortunate that civilians as young as Akeel have to die and that there was no accountability for such killings.” He expressed sympathies with the bereaved family and prayed to Almighty to give strength to the bereaved to bear the loss.
He expressed dismay over the fact that Chief Minister and head of the Unified Command had not spoken a word over the continued spree of civilian killings.
“Ever since PDP-BJP government assumed office, Kashmir has suffered deaths and maimings of worst order. And Mehbooba Mufti is not just complacent but silent too,” he said.
